Local leadership

Leadership and direction of air pollution control activities in the Valley are provided by the Governing Board of the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District (Valley District). The Board is comprised of 15 members: eight county Supervisors from each of the eight Valley counties (Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare) selected by their respective county Boards of Supervisors, five City Council members selected by the cities within the District, and two public members appointed by the Governor. These locally elected officials and appointees, acting as policy makers, ensure that implementation of state and federal air pollution mandates in the Valley is tailored to local conditions and is responsive to local needs.

Public Participation

The Board ensures that the process of developing and implementing the policies, procedures, plans, rules and regulations necessary to fulfill the state and federal mandates is carried out in an open, public forum, as required by California law. Public participation and input are encouraged at meetings of the Governing Board and at rule and plan development workshops. Most information created and used by the District is available to the public. This includes financial and budget reports, rules and regulations, planning documents, data on air quality and meeting agendas.
