EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

In 2019, the Board adopted a resolution authorizing staff to update the District's 2007 Clean Air Program to align with State programs, develop district-related strategies, and identify projects that would reduce emissions and improve air quality. The District's clean air program update is also known as the Maritime Clean Air Strategy (MCAS) and will focus on strategies and measures to help reduce emissions while promoting maritime operations.

Over a 20-month period, the draft MCAS has been refined and revised based on iterative public engagement, public comment, and prior Board direction, as summarized below. The first version of the MCAS was a Discussion Draft, which was circulated for a four-week public review period that took place from March 23, 2021 to April 20, 2021. Subsequently, at the May 11, 2021 Board meeting, staff presented an overview of the comments received during the four-week public review period and received direction from the Board regarding revisions to be made to the Draft Revised MCAS document. At the July 13, 2021 Board meeting, staff provided another update on the progress made since May and received further Board direction for revisions to the draft document, including revisions to emphasize it is a community focused document; the addition of a vision statement, "Health Equity for All"; and finally, adding a long-term goal to strive for 100% zero emission trucks and cargo handling equipment by 2030. Based on that direction, staff released the Draft Revised MCAS for a 30-day public review period that took place from August 5, 2021 to September 3, 2021.
