Oct. 6, 2017 – – The California Air Resources Board (CARB) will be holding informational meetings to discuss the development and implementation of community air monitoring programs and is soliciting participation. AB 617 (C. Garcia) created the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP or Program) in legislation enacted this summer. The Program’s focus is to reduce exposure in neighborhoods most impacted by air pollution. Over the next few years, CARB staff will be working closely with local air districts, community groups, community members, environmental organizations, and regulated industries to reduce harmful air emissions and create this new framework for community air monitoring.
The meetings will provide an opportunity for discussion with community members and stakeholders as we begin the implementation and development process. Each meeting will include a short presentation followed by group discussion of key elements of the program. Each meeting will follow the same format and present the same material. The agenda and presentation will be posted before the meetings on CARB’s website.
