Document Description
Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia 2017) requires the adoption and implementation of emissions reduction plans for communities with disproportional impacts from air pollution. Pursuant to AB 617, the proposed Plan includes strategies at the local community level to maximize emission reductions and reduce residents' cumulative exposure to criteria air pollutants, dieseI particulate matter (diesel PM), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), and toxic air contaminants. The West Oakland Community Action Plan is an integrated, multi-pollutant, community air quality plan to eliminate pollution disparities and improve public health in West Oakland. The Air District and the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project jointly developed the proposed plan for the West Oakland community. The Air District is the lead agency developing the proposed Plan and the preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The Plan identifies 84 potential strategies to reduce air pollution from a variety of stationary and mobile sources located in West Oakland.
