2020 Community Recommendations Staff Report
Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017) requires CARB to annually consider selection of communities within which community air monitoring systems and/or community emissions reduction programs will be developed and implemented. Staff have worked with community members, air districts, community-based organizations, and other stakeholders to develop this 2020 recommendation of new communities in the Community Air Protection Program. Based on criteria set forth in AB 617 and the Blueprint, public feedback in the virtual meetings, and previous CARB staff analysis conducted to characterize the emissions burden of communities throughout the State in the statewide assessment, staff are recommending:
- The Richmond-San Pablo Community in the BAAQMD selected for community air monitoring plan in 2018, transition to develop and implement a community emissions reduction program.
- The Arvin, Lamont Community in the SJVAPCD be selected to develop both a community air monitoring and emissions reduction programs.
