Ports of L.A., Long Beach to host Clean Air Action Plan meeting

The Port of Long Beach announced it would host a stakeholder meeting to provide updates on the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan on March 29.

This month’s workshop, which also includes the Port of Los Angeles, is the first advisory meeting for the Clean Air Action Plan Update. The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles could hold up to four workshops this year to receive public input on the environmentally themed guidance document.

Both port districts approved the Clean Air Action Plan update on Nov. 2, 2017.

The March 29 meeting will be held at the Port of Long Beach’s Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach. The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the first-floor training room.

Topics on the March 29 agenda include a discussion on near-term priorities, next steps for the Clean Truck Program and a timeline for feasibility assessments.

“The CAAP 2017 Update is a comprehensive strategy for accelerating progress toward a zero-emission future while protecting and strengthening the ports’ competitive position in the global economy,” Port of Long Beach staff said in a released statement. “The document calls for the ports to reduce [greenhouse gases] 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.”

The Clean Air Action Plan was originally approved in 2006. Visit cleanairactionplan.org for more information.
