The recommendations will be sent to the California Air Resources Board, which has the final say in community selection. CARB is expected to select between five and ten communities throughout the state for inclusion in the first year of the AB 617 program.
These four communities were selected out of a potential pool of 55 identified areas. The potential communities were prioritized based on existing monitoring data, quantity of schools in close proximity to freeways and other emission sources, and existing community engagement. In addition to the communities listed above, SCAQMD identified fourteen communities for recommendation in future years of the AB 617 program.
