Aug. 21, 2017
The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will hold a joint public workshop at 5 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 30, to offer the public an opportunity to comment on the recently released draft update of the Clean Air Action Plan, or CAAP. The public workshop will be held at Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water St. in Wilmington.
Participants interested in commenting at the workshop may do so by providing verbal comments at the microphone (up to three minutes per speaker) and/or submitting written comments on a comment card. Simultaneous Spanish translation will be available at the meeting. The meeting can also be viewed via live webcast on both of the ports’ websites and the CAAP site.
In addition, written comments may be submitted via email to [email protected] until 5 p.m. on Sept. 18, 2017. A joint meeting of the two ports’ Harbor Commissions is planned in November to consider the final draft. Interested parties are encouraged to register on the CAAP website — www.cleanairactionplan.org — to receive the latest information and meeting notices.
The draft CAAP 2017 Discussion Document is available at www.polb.com, www.portoflosangeles.org and www.cleanairactionplan.org.
The Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach are the two largest ports in the nation, first and second respectively, and combined are the ninth-largest port complex in the world. The two ports handle approximately 40 percent of the nation’s total containerized import traffic and 25 percent of its total exports. Trade that flows through the San Pedro Bay ports complex generates more than 3 million jobs nationwide.
