Notice of Public Workshop | Community Air Protection Program

The Ventura County Air Pollution Control District will hold a workshop to discuss the implementation of Assembly Bill 617 (AB 617). This new initiative is known as the Community Air Protection Program.

The meeting will be held at the following time and location:

Oxnard Performing Arts Center

800 Hobson Way

Oxnard, California

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

6:30 p.m.

Thousand Oaks & Hueneme Meeting Rooms.

While Ventura County has experienced tremendous improvement in air quality over the past 30 years, AB 617 recognizes that some communities still suffer greater impacts than others. AB 617 was developed to build on the foundation of existing air-quality programs to provide additional tools to target actions in communities that may experience the greatest burdens and impacts.

 

District staff will provide an overview of AB 617 and discuss the criteria to identify and prioritize communities that experience the greatest pollutant burdens or are the most susceptible to air pollution. District staff is seeking comments on the criteria used to identify and prioritize these communities. 

District staff is very interested in hearing the public’s input on local community air-pollutant concerns. By understanding local community concerns, the implementation of this program is more likely to be successful.

The public is invited to attend this meeting and provide input on the implementation of this new program. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Michael Villegas at (805) 645-1440 or by email mike@vcapcd.org.
