Clean Air Action Plan Input Sought

The public will have an opportunity to weigh in on the latest efforts to implement initiatives contained in the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan 2017 Update.

This meeting, the third one this year, is set to take place from 10 a.m. to noon on October 3, in the first-floor Multi-Purpose Room at the Port of Long Beach Administration Building, 415 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, Calif. 90802.

Approved by the Long Beach and Los Angeles Harbor Commissions in November 2017, the Update is a blueprint to fast-tracking the port’s zero-emission goals with a number of initiatives. The strategy includes more on-dock rail use, the development of a rate structure and incentives to create quicker turnover to near-zero and zero-emission trucks, more cargo flow efficiency, and lower emissions with programs such as a universal truck reservation system, staging yards and intelligent transportation systems.

Part of the Update involves up to four CAAP stakeholder advisory meetings annually.
