With communities along Colorado's Front Range continuing to grow at a rapid rate, government, private businesses and citizens are faced with difficult choices concerning air quality and transportation. Can we control the "brown cloud" and increasing congestion on our roads and freeways? What decisions and sacrifices must be made, and who will take responsibility for them? Wade Buchanan, Chairman of the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC), will moderate a panel addressing these issues including David Pampu, Deputy Executive Director of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG); Christine Shaver, Environmental Defense Fund attorney; and Ken Hotard, Senior Vice-President of the Boulder Area Board of Realtors.
