Such plan shall describe the expected environmental impact of creating and utilizing such zones, including but not limited to any anticipated citywide reductions in vehicle miles traveled, greenhouse gas emissions, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, volatile organic compounds, particulate matter and other air pollutants.

If the department is unable to meet any compliance date set forth in this section, the department shall submit to the mayor and the speaker of the council within ten days after such date a report setting forth the reasons for such noncompliance and the department’s timeline for achieving compliance.
