BETTER AIR, BETTER HEALTH
Air quality can have a significant impact on our natural environment and our public health.
Sustainable Sandhills manages the Air Quality Program for the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO). Together, we are improving and protecting the air quality in our region for current and future generations.
FAMPO develops plans that improve our transportation network and enhance our environment across parts of Cumberland, Hoke, Harnett and Robeson counties.
Regional Air Quality Action Plan
The Air Quality Action Plan is implemented each year. The plan contains actions and programs that will be implemented to improve and protect air quality in the FAMPO Region. You can read the 2019 plan below. Stakeholders in our region are working on the 2023 plan. The 2023 Air Quality Action Plan will be available in March of 2023.
