The Air District is seeking your review and comment in an effort to enhance our community engagement practices. The Air District is proposing to adopt a Public Participation Plan that will serve as a guide for Air District staff in our interaction with all of you and the communities you and we serve.

The draft proposed Public Participation Plan has been posted on the Air District’s website (www.baaqmd.gov/public) along with a flier for workshops planned in June. The comment and outreach period for the Public Participation Plan will run through July.




If you would like Air District staff to meet with your organization or with other groups in your local community to discuss the draft proposed Public Participation Plan please contact Kristina Chu to schedule a meeting. Kristina can be reached at kchu@baaqmd.gov or (415) 749-4758.

Thanks for your time, attention and commitment to clean air and community health.

The Public Participation Plan was developed in response to an internal assessment of the Air District's public participation practices. The intent of the Public Participation Plan is to enhance the Air District's public participation process; making it easier to know how and when to engage with the Air District and to stay updated on the outcomes of projects and plans.

Implementation of the Public Participation Plan will augment and improve current public engagement efforts. Currently, the Air District works with stakeholders and interested parties in a variety of different forums: workshops, meetings, conferences, and public hearings, to name a few. Implementing the Public Participation Plan will ensure the Air District consistently organizes public participation efforts for all major projects and processes.

A central focus of the Air District's Public Participation Plan is to improve the Air District's public engagement efforts with a focus on better understanding and notice of Air District activities. Enhanced public participation efforts will allow for greater participation from a greater number of Bay Area residents and will ensure Air District staff are aware of the public's air quality concerns.

The Air District recognizes the tremendous responsibility of protecting and improving public health, air quality and the global climate, and we cannot meet our goals without first improving on our communication and engagement methods and ensuring we fulfill our commitments to the public. We hope this document serves as a first step in outlining the Air District's goals in future public engagement activities, as well as the Air District's unwavering commitment to transparency and good government, public engagement and a healthy breathing environment for every Bay Area resident.
