Transportation Facility Permitting

A "Transportation Facility” (Facility) is any facility which is or may be an air pollution source and includes, but not limited to parking lots, parking decks, and any other facility which will result in increased emissions from motor vehicles.  Construction or modification of a “Facility” may result in an  ambient air quality standard being exceeded and may require issuance of a “Transportation Facility Permit” (TFP).
