The Plan to Create Breathing Room

The Breathing Room Path Froward is a plan to continue the positive trend of improving air quality in our region. 

On September 17, 2019, the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissions approved the Breathing Room Path Forward, after it was reviewed and endorsed by the Environmental Stewardship Committee and the Air Quality Commission.   The the strategies and timeline below, which are part of the Path Forward, were developed based on community input, policy priorities, and available funding.

 

NOW (2019-2021)

Transit Expansion Advocacy

School Bus Electrification 

Greenway Expansion Advocacy

Airport Shuttle Electrification

Ground-support Equipment Electrification

 

NEXT (2021-2022)

Complete Streets

Community Solar

Property Assessed Clean Energy Program

 

FUTURE (2023+)

 Energy Audit Program

Zoning: EV Charging Infrastructure

 

 

 Air Quality Commission members presented at the Environmental Stewardship Committee meeting.

Cash for Clunkers

Zoning: Eliminate Parking Minimum

​Because the Charlotte region has a history of poor air quality, a number of programs are already in place to reduce air pollution. These successful strategies will continue in the region:

Industrial source permitting and compliance assistance
GRADE (Grants to Replace Aging Diesel Engines)
Air Awareness education and outreach services
Smoking vehicle program
Idle reduction resources

 

 Can you help us create Breathing Room?
