Regional Air Quality Council
Our mission is to develop and propose effective and cost-efficient air quality planning initiatives with input from local government agencies, the private sector, stakeholder groups, and citizens of the Denver metropolitan area and the Denver Metro/North Front Range Ozone Non-Attainment Area. We plan and implement a variety of public outreach and education efforts. The RAQC assists with regional public/private initiatives to reduce emissions from the transportation sector, mobile sources, and other sources.
In an effort to keep interested stakeholders informed of current happenings with RAQC programs, partners, and air quality news and events, the RAQC created “The Air Monitor” quarterly e-newsletter. You can read the first issue here. If you are interested in subscribing to the newsletter, please contact Sara Goodwin at email@example.com.
