Keep Watching and Showing Up
Thank you to all of our supported for attending the Hearing Board meeting in November. Your
presence continues to put a face on the serious health threat coming from the SVRA. This is
important. Our message that health trumps other concerns has prevailed, so far. But it’s not
over yet. We must keep watching and showing up.
Members of the Citizens for Clean Air are actively monitoring the actions of the SLO County
Board of Supervisors, the APCD Board, the Air Pollution Control Officer, the California Coastal
Commission and State Parks to assure the SVRA PM emissions problem continues to be a
priority and is solved as soon as possible. Constant vigilance is essential. Some of us attend all
board meetings where the dust issue is on the agenda, or should be on the agenda. We also
write to and meet with influential leaders, agency managers and staff and elected officials.
We provide them with the facts about SVRA dust, and let know we are still here and looking for
responsible and effective action. Our message is simple and true: All people have a right to
clean and healthy air.
February Coastal Commission Meeting
We will have representatives at the Coastal Commission February meeting in Long Beach (see
Coastal Commission meeting agenda). State Parks will report to the Commission on its
progress toward developing a Public Works Plan for the Oceano Dunes SVRA. State Parks has
requested an emergency Coastal Development Permit (CDP) to implement the dust controls
required by the Amended SOA. However, approval of this permit request is not on the
February meeting agenda.
Wear a Clean Air button when
you attend public meetings to

SVRA dust pollution. Make our

responsibility to ensure that
