The Concept Paper provides the basic framework for the implementation of the Community Air Protection Program. It provides guidance the following program areas:
The public has the opportunity to provide comments on the Concept Paper at the CARB Website.
The second document, the Draft Process and Criteria for 2018 Community Selections, establishes the process for how a community member, air district, or other entity can submit recommendations for 2018 selection into the program.
Community members and businesses located within or near communities with elevated concentrations of criteria or toxic pollutants should be aware of the Community Air Protection Program and its ongoing selection process. Future community-level emission reduction plans may require businesses and other sources of emissions in or near the selected communities to control emissions or curtail operations in order to meet the goals of the plans.
The implementation of this new program will impact the business community. Alta regularly assesses proposed regulatory programs on behalf of our clients and provides comment letters.
