A resolution expressing the Metropolitan Council’s support for the inclusion of recent revisions to Section 10.56.020 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws into the State Implementation Plan and requesting that the State of Tennessee Air Pollution Control Division (APCD) adopt such revisions.
WHEREAS, on July 5, 2016, the Metropolitan Council adopted Ordinance No. BL2016-234 which amended various sections of Chapter 10.56 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to allow additional information requirements under section 10.56.020.A.1, and to add Metropolitan Zoning Code compliance to the provisions of section 10.56.020H; and
WHEREAS, the revisions to Chapter 10.56 in Ordinance No. BL2016-234 allow, in part, the Director of the Metro Health Department to request additional information from applicants for construction permits of equipment or facilities that are a source of air contaminant emissions, enabling the director to request information necessary to determine whether the source would operate in violation of Metro Code air pollution regulations or prevent attainment or maintenance of national air quality standards; and
WHEREAS, the revisions to Chapter 10.56 within Ordinance No. BL2016-234 further require all new sources of emissions to comply with the Metropolitan Zoning Code for the use of the property on which the source would be constructed, excluding legal nonconforming uses; and
WHEREAS, the State of Tennessee Air Pollution Control Division is considering, and has sought public comment upon, the inclusion of revisions to Davidson County’s Code of Ordinance Chapter 10.56.020 “Construction Permits” into the State Implementation Plan (SIP). Specifically, the APCD has sought comment on whether the recent ordinance amendment should be incorporated into the SIP; and
WHEREAS, revisions considered by the Tennessee Air Pollution Control Board may be adopted by the Board under Tenn. Code Ann. § 68-201-105, the Board’s general authority to promulgate rules.
