Los Angeles/Long Beach Ports to Vote on Clean Air Action Plan

By Karen Robes Meeks

Harbor leaders for the nation’s two busiest seaports are expected to vote on Nov. 2 on the 2017 Update of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan.

The Harbor Commission for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will meet to consider approval of the update, which is expected to contain several initiatives that will curb emissions from port-related operations, including the implementation of programs that lower ship pollution and low-to-no emission cargo equipment and vehicles.

The joint meeting will take place at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2, at the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel, 601 S. Palos Verdes St., San Pedro, 90731. The meeting also will be live-streamed at polb.com/webcast and at portoflosangeles.org.
