AQC (Air Quality Committee) Meeting Minutes, 9.8.14
Breakfast Room, Silver Cloud Inn , 7:00 pm

Present: Kathy Sharp, Bob L, Jorjan Parker, Evan Farnham, Sharon Genasci

There was some discussion about the signage at the New Seasons Store, the first project under the Clean Diesel Agreement with John Residential. As part of the agreement we had discussed the use of signage at the site to notify neighbors of the reduction in diesel during construction. The sign will read, “Clean Diesel Works Here, Reducing Diesel Emissions During Construction” There Was agreement that this was appropriate.

It was decided that we might look to the City to get help with old, diesel trucks, such as those used during excavation, which still remain a problem.

Kathy presented a rough draft of her submission for the Comprehensive Plan from the AQC. Committee members were asked to look it over and make suggested changes. The AQC would like to see the City issuing building permits that require measures to reduce emissions into Portland’s airshed.

One person gave the example of a recent open, asphalt kettle streaming pollution in NW Neighborhood air for the last three weeks.

Kevin Downing, at a recent EPA conference on diesel wrote the committee that the clean diesel agreement with John Residential was used at the conference as an example of successful neighborhood activism.

Several complaints about ESCO odors were received recently.
