The Air District is expanding existing efforts to reduce community air pollutant exposure through the state’s Community Air Protection Program, also known as Assembly Bill 617. This effort initiates community-based emissions reduction programs in neighborhoods most disproportionately impacted by air pollution.

West Oakland has been selected as a first-year priority community in the Bay Area. The Air District has partnered with the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project as co-chairs for a community-based steering committee to develop a West Oakland Community Action Plan that will serve as the blueprint for improving air quality in this community. 

Video highlights of the Kick-off Steering Committee meeting held on July 27, 2018, show the strong support of community leaders and stakeholders for this effort.

How will the West Oakland Community Action Plan improve air quality?

The goal of the West Oakland Community Action Plan is to reduce people’s exposure to air pollution and associated health burdens. Specific pollutants that will be addressed under the plan include:

  • fine particulate matter
  • toxic air contaminants
  • diesel particulate matter

The West Oakland Community Action Plan will build on existing West Oakland work, and identify air pollution sources and people most susceptible to air pollution. Based on this effort, the plan will recommend strategies to reduce air pollution emissions and exposure. Measures will address:

  • regulatory changes for mobile and stationary sources of air pollution
  • land-use decisions
  • compliance with rules
  • incentives
  • other identified measures to reduce exposure to air pollution

The Air District’s Board of Directors is required to adopt the plan by October 2019.

Why West Oakland?

West Oakland, bounded by the Port of Oakland, the Union Pacific rail yard, and the I-580, I-880, and I-980 freeways, is one of the most impacted areas in the San Francisco Bay Area. There are numerous sources of diesel particulate matter and toxic air contaminants, and the area has long been a focus of the Air District’s Community Air Risk Evaluation (CARE) program. Sources that contribute to high levels of diesel particulate matter concentrations and toxic air contaminants include:

  • seaport activities
  • locomotives
  • large distribution centers
  • concrete plant
  • power plant
  • metal melting and shredding facilities
  • industrial and manufacturing operations
  • major freeways and busy roadways used as trucking routes

Communities adjacent to West Oakland will benefit from measures in the West Oakland Community Action Plan.

Partnership with Community

The Air District has partnered with the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project (WOEIP), which has a history of community planning and advocacy to reduce people's exposure to diesel particulate matter and toxic air contaminants. WOEIP has led or participated in numerous air quality and health studies in West Oakland, including:

  • Neighborhood Knowledge for Change: The West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project (2002)
  • Clearing the Air: Reducing Diesel Pollution in West Oakland (2003)
  • Paying with Our Health: The Real Cost of Freight Transport in California (2006)
  • West Oakland Truck Survey (2009)

WOEIP was a member of the West Oakland Specific Plan (2014) working group and continues to participate in the Oakland Army Base Stakeholder Group. In addition, WOEIP co-chaired the Port of Oakland’s 2009 Maritime Air Improvement Plan and is co-chairing the follow-up plan currently underway, the Seaport Air Quality 2020 and Beyond Plan.
