Rule 803  Attainment Pollutant Zone Redesignations.

          A.   The District Air Pollution Control Board may
               redesignate areas as Class I or Class II zones
               with respect to attainment pollutant  increment
               consumption, provided that:

               1.   Prior to the issuance of notice respecting
                    the redesignation of an area that includes
                    any Federal lands, the Air Pollution Control
                    Officer shall provide written notice to the
                    appropriate Federal Land Manager and afford
                    adequate opportunity (not in excess of 60
                    days) to confer with the Air Pollution
                    Control Officer respecting the redesignation
                    and to submit written comments and
                    recommendations.  In redesignating any area
                    with respect to which any Federal Land
                    Manager has submitted written comments and
                    recommendations,  the Air Pollution Control
                    Officer shall publish a list of any
                    inconsistency between such redesignation and
                    such comments and recommendations together
                    with the reasons for making redesignation
                    against the recommendation of the Federal
                    Land Manager; and

               2.   At least one public hearing is to be held to
                    receive comments relative to such
                    redesignation.  The notice of public hearing
                    shall be published at least 30 days prior to
                    the hearing date in a newspaper of general
                    circulation in the District; and

               3.   The Air Pollution Control Officer shall
                    consult with the Control Council of the
                    Mountain Counties Air Basin regarding such
                    redesignation; and

               4.   Federal Land Managers and other Air Pollution
                    Control Districts outside the Mountain
                    Counties Air Basin whose lands may be
                    affected shall be notified at least 30 days
                    prior to the public hearing; and

               5.   A description of the reasons for the proposed
                    redesignation, including a description and
                    analysis of the health, environmental,
                    economic, social, and energy effects of the
                    proposed redesignation shall be prepared and
                    made available for public inspection at least
                    30 days prior to the hearing and the notice
                    announcing the hearing shall contain
                    appropriate notification of the availability
                    of such discussion.

          B.   The District Air Pollution Control Board may
               redesignate areas, except those listed in Rule
               802.A.1. and C.1., as Class III zones with respect
               to attainment pollutant increment consumption,
               provided that:

               1.   All the requirements for a Class I or Class
                    II area redesignation contained in Section A.
                    above shall be met with respect to the
                    proposed Class III area redesignation; and

               2.   The redesignation shall have been
                    specifically approved by the Air Resources
                    Board after consultation with the
                    Legislature, if it is in session, or with the
                    leadership of the Legislature if it is not in
                    session; and

               3.   The District Air Pollution Control Board
                    shall enact a resolution concurring with the
                    redesignation; and

               4.   The redesignation shall not cause, or
                    contribute to, a concentration of any the
                    classification of any other area or any
                    national ambient air quality standard; and

               5.   Any Authority to Construct application for
                    any major stationary source or major
                    modification subject to the provisions of
                    Regulation VI which could receive an
                    Authority to Construct only if the area in
                    question were redesignated as Class III, and
                    any material submitted as part of that
                    application, shall be made available, insofar
                    as is practicable, for public inspection
                    prior to any public hearing on redesignation
                    of any area as Class III.
