Air quality community workshops in Kansas City

The Mid-America Regional Council is leading community discussions to formulate a regional Clean Air Action Plan for the Kansas City region. The plan will articulate the community’s strategy to protect air quality over the long term, and to comply with new federal regulations for ground level ozone.

MARC is working with local, state and federal government officials; business and industry representatives and environmental and public health interests to identify the most effective strategies to protect the Kansas City region’s air quality. MARC’s Air Quality Forum and its Air Quality Work Group have led work to analyze the problem and outline a range of possible measures. A number of discussions have been held with various interest groups, many convened by community partners.

To provide additional opportunities for participation in this planning process, MARC will convene two air quality community workshops. The first workshop will be held on September 10, 2004.
