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. This 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.
The District is soliciting comments on the Plan. To ensure comments are included in the Board Package, the District requests that written comments be submitted to the project manager identified below before 5 p.m. on February 11, 2015.
Compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Requirements
The District met the CEQA requirements for the 2010 Clean Air Plan by means of an Environmental Impact Report (SCH No. 2010071014). The District will prepare an Addendum to the Environmental Impact Report for the 2010 Clean Air Plan to satisfy CEQA requirements for the 2013 Plan.
Copies of the Plan may be downloaded for review from the Clean Air Plan page. Hard copies will be made available upon request.
