Opportunity to comment on proposed City and County Clean Air Construction Standard

The Portland City Council and the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners passed parallel resolutions on Sept. 20, 2018, committing to establish a Clean Air Construction Procurement Standard. The standard would require equipment used on City and County construction projects to dramatically reduce diesel particulate matter from older diesel engines.  Public comment on the proposed Clean Air Construction Standard will be accepted now through Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 4pm.  All information you submit, including your name and contact information, will become part of the public record.  To view the proposed Clean Air Construction Standard and submit comments, please go to: https://multco.us/sustainability/news/public-comment-needed-clean-air-construction-standards
