NARC held the seventh in a series of workshops addressing integrating air quality and transportation planning in Washington, DC, on February 24, 2004. This workshop discussed the importance of building relationships and implementing effective public outreach programs to tackle air quality problems. It also featured presentations on program and process evaluation, which facilitates identifying program areas that may need improvement, allowing a community to determine accountability, and justifying program objectives. Presenters demonstrated accomplishments and areas for improvement by using the tracking tools and resources available through FHWA’s It All Adds up to Cleaner Air program that promotes public education and partnership-building in order to successfully address air quality issues.
