Path to Clean Air Steering Committee

The Air District is partnering with the Richmond-North Richmond-San Pablo community to develop and implement a Community Emissions Reduction Plan through the state of California’s Community Air Protection Program, also known as Assembly Bill 617. The CSC is critical to ensure a community-driven plan that reflects the community’s values, needs and preferences.

The Path to Clean Air Steering Committee consists of up to 27 local community members, which include government and industry representatives in the Richmond, North Richmond, and San Pablo area. The CSC meets monthly and provides direction and community perspective for the Air District to co-develop the CERP.
