The Port of San Diego invites the public to review and provide input on the Draft Revised Maritime Clean Air Strategy (MCAS) and to attend a Virtual MCAS Update meeting on Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021, at 5:30 p.m.
With a newly established vision, “Health Equity for All,” representing the Port’s commitment to environmental justice and other changes made in response to feedback from the public and a broad range of stakeholders, the Draft Revised MCAS was released on August 5, 2021.
As an update to the Port’s 2007 Clean Air Program, the MCAS identifies a vision centered on health equity, with ambitious goals for 2030 that will contribute to improved air quality. The transformational policy document will help the Port identify future projects and initiatives to improve health through cleaner air for all who live, work, and play on and around San Diego Bay while also supporting efficient and modern maritime operations.
Collaboration with community residents, industry, businesses, public agencies, and non-government organizations helped produce the goals and objectives identified in the MCAS Discussion Draft issued for review and feedback in March 2021. The Draft Revised MCAS reflects changes made based on that feedback and direction by the Board of Port Commissioners.
