Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBU APCD) will provide an updated Zero Emission Vehicle regional readiness plane. Implementation activities will include site planning for electric vehicle (EV) chargers and efforts to increase public awareness and adoption of EVs will be targeted in disadvantaged communities within the Monterey region.
MBU APCD will facilitate accelerated ZEV adoption in the region and, whenever possible, these activities will target disadvantaged communities in the region as identified in CalEnviroScreen 3.0. Benefit will be increasing the number of PEVs in the region that will reduce GHG emissions.
The project involves planning, coordination, and outreach activities and does not result in physical changes to the environment. No physical construction will occur as part of this project. Rather, the outreach activities funded under this project include, for example, public "ride and drives" and interaction with Monterey Bay area fleet managers to promote EVs. This project has no potential for causing a significant environmental impact, and therefore is categorically exempt under Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, S: 15061(b)(3).
