Public Participation Plan

Learn about the Air District’s plan for engaging with and receiving input from the public.

The Air District published its first  Public Participation Plan  in 2013. The plan describes how the Air District informs and engages Bay Area residents in its activities. This plan was created in partnership with a Stakeholder Advisory Task Force comprised of community members, environmental activists, government agencies, and industry members.

The Air District is proud that many of the goals laid out in the 2013 Plan have been achieved or are in progress. Our Shared Journey Toward Meaningful Community Engagement: Where We’ve Been & How We’re Navigating the Road Ahead Together provides a summary of the Air District’s implementation of the 2013 Plan while also shining a spotlight on where we are expanding our community engagement strategies and policies. You can help inform the Air District’s community engagement programs by sharing your thoughts on Open Air Forum.

Thank you for continuing to work with us to ensure our engagement practices are equitable and inclusive and lead to outcomes that protect and improve public health, air quality, and the global climate. In 2021 we will bring together community members and key stakeholders to revisit and expand our community engagement approaches.
