General Project Description

The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) Board of Directors will hold a public hearing at the time and location listed above to accept comments and consider adoption of the 2013 Clean Air Plan (Plan).  The public hearing on the Plan will begin around 1:00 p.m. or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard.
The California Clean Air Act (CCAA) requires that the District report progress in meeting state mandates and revise the District’s 1991 Air Quality Attainment Plan to reflect changing conditions on a triennial basis.  The triennial progress report assesses the overall effectiveness of the District’s air quality program and the extent of air quality improvement resulting from the prior plans.  The Plan solely addresses attainment of the state ozone standard and proposes specific control measures to reduce ozone forming pollutants.  The District will submit the Board-adopted Plan to the California Air Resources Board for approval.
