FREE Workshop Healthy Places, People, Planet

Healthy People, Healthy Places, Healthy Planet:

Growth Management Strategies for Air and Climate Friendly Communities

Thursday, June 14, Everett 9:00 a.m. to Noon, Snohomish County Council Chambers

The land use choices local governments make not only affect where people live, the types of homes they live in, how far they travel, whether they drive alone or travel with others. These choices also impact public health, air quality and global climate.

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is your air quality planning and management resource for King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties and the cities within them.

Our clean air policies, adopted by the agency’s Board of Directors on February 22, 2007, are intended to promote public health, clean air and climate protection by focusing on six key action areas:

  1. Air and climate friendly development

  2. Cleaner travel

  3. Reducing exposure to air pollution

  4. Cleaner heating

  5. Environmental justice

  6. Using environmental laws for better public health and air quality

Come to one of our four workshops to learn more about our policies and how you can use them, and help us design implementation tools and resources that will meet your needs.
