From asthma & allergies to cancer & brain development in kids*, air has a big impact on our community health. Poor air quality can affect us inside, as well as outside our homes. In fact, indoor air quality is often more polluted than outdoor air. The City works on different air quality strategies to address radon, ozone, carbon monoxide, fugitive dust, and more. Help decide where the City’s Environmental Services department should focus its efforts.
We know you are busy, but your voice is important. That’s why we will:
· Feed you dinner
· Watch your kids, including interactive activities on our air and environment
· Give you a $30 grocery gift card
During this community conversation, you will have a chance to sit down with other community members and a Center for Public Deliberation facilitator. The facilitator will lead you through a conversation about what’s most important to you when it comes to air quality. After you weigh in on key City strategies, the Environmental Services department will design a plan based on what the community had to say.
