Enhanced Community Air Monitoring
In response to feedback we heard from the community last fall, we committed to lead the development of an enhanced air monitoring program in the Commerce City and North Denver (CC-ND) area that supplements other Colorado regional air monitoring initiatives. We are asking the community to help us shape this important program for our region at two public meetings in May. The meetings will be held at 6 p.m. MT on Tuesday, May 18 and Wednesday, May 26. Both meetings will include real-time Spanish interpretation.
At the public meeting, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the program and hear from environmental experts from Montrose Air Quality Services (Montrose), a third-party team of engineers, scientists, analysts and technicians selected to develop and implement the community air monitoring network and provide near real-time air quality information to the public. We’ll also seek input from participants on where they would like to see additional monitors located in the community.
Register to attend one of the sessions and submit questions in advance:
We recognize the community likely has some questions about air monitoring and all that it entails, so here is a quick overview:

Montrose’s air quality division is one of the largest air quality measurement groups in the world and specializes in not only the measurement of air quality, but also the development and evaluation of emerging technologies for conducting these measurements. With an air quality office in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood, Montrose has been selected based upon their extensive experience conducting similar air monitoring programs, including Denver’s “Love My Air”.
After receiving community feedback, we’ll work with Montrose to finalize program components for the initial evaluation phase of the air monitoring program, which will launch this summer. We will be back in touch with the community when the program launches to share information and updates on this page.
