The California Air Resources Board (ARB) will be in holding a workshop in Bakersfield on Sept. 1 to discuss updates to a policy aimed at benefitting disadvantaged communities.

The policy, known as Supplemental Environmental Projects was established as a result of the passage of Assembly bill 1071 in 2015 and recognizes that communities who are impacted by multiple sources of pollution “need resources to address environmental health issues and to implement community-led solutions,” reads the bill.

The community discussion and workshop will be held at the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District located at 34946 Flyover Court in Bakersield from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
