Los Angeles port boards to review clean air plan

| November 10, 2010

The Los Angeles and Long Beach boards of Harbor Commissioners will reconvene on Nov. 22 to consider approval of the 2010 San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan Update, which sets even more aggressive goals and strategies for reducing air pollution and health risks from the goods transportation industry.

When the original CAAP was adopted in 2006, the ports designed it as a “living document” that would be reviewed periodically. The 2010 Update is the result of that process of improving the original CAAP. The two harbor commissions met jointly on Oct. 6 to consider the CAAP Update, and both boards voted to continue the matter to allow for additional public review.

The Nov. 22 meeting is scheduled at 2 p.m. PT at Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water St., Wilmington. The meeting will be webcast live at www.polb.com/webcast.
