Gateway Cities COG Air Quality Action Plan

Gateway Cities COG Air Quality Action Plan

The Gateway Cities Clean Air Program was created to provide financial incentive to help reduce air pollution in Southern California . We consider it to have been a very successful six year pilot program which began in 2002 and ended in 2008. The program was managed by the Gateway Cities Council of Governments with funding from the Port of Long Beach , Port of Los Angeles , California Air Resources Board, South Coast Air Quality Management District, and United States Environmental Protection Agency. Through the Clean Air Program, participating truck owners received $24.5 million in grants to replace 643 highly polluting older model heavy-duty diesel trucks with newer and cleaner, lower-emitting trucks.

The 643 replacement trucks funded through the program are making major contributions towards improved air quality and human health in the South Coast Air Basin. Perhaps the most valuable benefit – reduced human exposure to emissions of harmful diesel particulate matter – is especially being realized throughout the Gateway Cities sub-region, including within and around the ports and along key goods movement corridors.

We appreciate the effort of all of the participants in this program including our funding partners, truck dealers and program participants. Without everyone working together in this collective effort the Gateway Cities Clean Air Program would not have been as successful as it was.

AIR QUALITY ACTION PLAN SUMMARY

The Gateway Cities Council of Governments (GCCOG) was tasked with preparing an Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) to address the issue of improving the air quality in the I-710 Corridor.  The purpose of this AQAP is to address these community concerns which included the following:

  1. Develop a work plan to improve air quality in the corridor.
  2. Implement a corridor level work plan to improve air quality.
  3. Implement local alternative fuels/electrification and/or hydrogen  policies and programs to reduce diesel emissions.
  4. Pursue opportunities for incremental improvements.
  5. Implement Port-specific strategies.

In response to these community concerns and requests the Gateway Cities Council of Governments has initiated the Gateway Cities Council of Governments Air Quality Action Plan Phase 1:

Phase 1 of the Gateway Cities Council of Governments Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) is a unique planning effort.  The GCCOG will engage major stakeholders from corridor cities, the environmental community, and air quality regulatory agencies to secure ideas, concerns, comments and directions for the AQAP.

Once the Gateway Cities Council of Governments Air Quality Action Plan Phase 1 initial analyses are completed, the Gateway Cities Council of Governments will proceed with the subsequent steps and strategies developed from this initial work.
