Governor Polis appoints Commissioner Holen to Air Quality Board

County Commissioner Bill Holen

Colorado Governor Jared Polis has named Arapahoe County Commissioner Bill Holen to the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC) Board of Directors. The RAQC has been the lead air quality planning agency for the Denver metro area since its establishment in 1989. It works with local government, the private sector, citizens, and other stakeholders to conceive and create effective and affordable air quality planning initiatives.

In his role on the Board, Commissioner Holen will work with other appointees to study air quality issues that affect the Front Range and nearby communities, and help develop proposals and incentive programs that are designed to reduce emissions across the transportation sector. Holen already serves the RAQC as a representative of local government, and his Board term will expire in April 2022.

“I’m pleased and honored to have been named to the RAQC Board by Governor Polis,” Holen said. “With the incredible growth we’ve experienced throughout the metro area comes a new set of environmental concerns and challenges. The RAQC’s objective is to lead discussions around how to address these air quality issues, and to coordinate with other agencies and the public about becoming more involved with finding solutions to whatever problems we’ve identified.”

In Arapahoe County, Commissioner Holen helps oversee the Community Resources and Finance departments. He serves on the County’s Capital Improvements Project Team, the Arapahoe County Foundation Board of Directors, the Public Airport Authority Board of Directors, the Housing Authority, the Community Services Block Grant Advisory Committee, the Board of Social Services and the Forfeiture Committee for the Sheriff’s Office. Commissioner Holen also represents Arapahoe County’s interests on boards and committees including the Aurora Economic Development Council Board of Directors, the Colorado Counties Inc. Transportation and Telecommunications Committee, the E-470 Public Highway Authority Board of Directors, Metro Area County Commissioners and the National Association of Counties Transportation Subcommittee.
