|03-4-4||Public Meeting to Consider Proposed Grants for Developing New Air Monitoring Instruments
Staff will provide the Board with information regarding the development of new air monitoring instruments. The ultimate goal is commercial availability of inexpensive, easily-used instruments that can be deployed widely to assess local air quality. Staff is using the ICAT grant mechanism to facilitate this effort.
Staff from Research Division, Monitoring and Laboratory Division, CEC, USEPA, and academia have reviewed 13 proposals for projects to develop and demonstrate new instruments. The staff of the ARB has selected two of the proposals to recommend to the Board for new grants.
Half of the funds for grants will be provided by the California Energy Commission, via a contract with ARB.
Although no formal Board action may be taken, the Board is allowing an opportunity to interested members of the public to address the Board on items of interest that are within the Board's jurisdiction, but that do not specifically appear on the agenda. Each person will be allowed a maximum of five minutes to ensure that everyone has a chance to speak.
THOSE ITEMS ABOVE WHICH ARE NOT COMPLETED ON MAY 22 WILL BE HEARD BEGINNING AT 8:30 A.M ON MAY 23.
THE AGENDA ITEMS LISTED ABOVE MAY BE CONSIDERED IN A DIFFERENT ORDER AT THE BOARD MEETING.
