Community Forum on the Clean Air Benefits of Zero Emission Technologies
On Thursday, March 24, 2011 join 7th District Councilmember and the West Long Beach Association for a community presentation by the Air Quality Management District (AQMD).
The presentation will discuss the current air quality in West Long Beach, health effects of air pollution, and zero emission technologies. With expansion plans of near-dock rail being considered, it is pertinent to consider zero emission technologies as an efficient and greener way to move goods.
“The technology currently exists to move containers to near-dock facilities without polluting our communities. Such zero-emissions goods movement technology represents a true paradigm shift, as we would be able to move goods quickly and efficiently to market without sacrificing the health of our neighborhoods,” says Councilmember James Johnson.
This free presentation is open to all concerned residents. Light refreshments will be served.
The Clean Air Benefits of Zero Emission Technologies event is Thursday March 24th, 2011 from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM at Silverado Park Community Room
1545 W. 31st St., Long Beach, 90810.
