Portland, OR - The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and the Oregon Health Authority recently invited the public to attend four Cleaner Air Oregon regional forums, taking place in September and early October, and now announce some changes to the forum schedule. The updated schedule for the four forums is as follows:
Tues., Sept. 13, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Jackson County Library, in Medford, Oregon
Tues., Sept. 20, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Central Oregon Community College, Wile Hall in Bend, Oregon
Wed., Sept. 28, 6 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. at Pendleton Convention Center in Pendleton, Oregon
Wed., Oct. 5, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Oregon Convention Center, Oregon Ballroom in Portland, Oregon – PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE from Oct. 4 to Oct. 5.
This updated schedule allows for a slightly extended finish time, in addition to a new date for Portland.
The forums seek to gather input from communities throughout Oregon about creating human health risk-based rules for industrial facilities, for consideration by the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission. Public input from the forums and from an online version of the forum will be shared with the Cleaner Air Oregon Regulatory Advisory Committee. That advisory committee will meet from October through April 2017 and will provide input into the drafting of new air toxics rules.
