The City of Austin maintains a goal to promote healthy outdoor air for all its residents and City policy makers want your input on how to best prepare for the growing air quality challenges in our region. Currently, we are looking for your ideas on how to develop a more comprehensive air quality program by improving our outreach/education, enforcement, technical assistance, planning/analysis, reporting and data collection.

Help us provide the City Council with recommendations for a more robust air quality program.
