About the Air District

The Board of Directors oversees the Air District as it develops policies, plans, rules, permits, enforcement, outreach, and grant programs to protect air quality, public health, and the global climate.

The Air District’s Board of Directors is made up of 24 locally elected representatives from 9 Bay Area counties. Each county’s population determines the number of representatives on the Board, as follows:

  • Marin and Napa: 1 representative each
  • Solano and Sonoma: 2 representatives each
  • San Francisco and San Mateo: 3 representatives each
  • Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara: 4 representatives each

The Board has 12 standing committees that assist the District in its mission to improve air quality, protect public health and global climate.

Rules and regulations are adopted by a majority of the Board, with public hearings required before rules are changed or adopted.

Questions or comments to the Board may be sent to the Clerk of the Boards. To ensure your message is presented at the next Board meeting, be sure to send it 24 hours before the meeting starts.
