Cleveland launches clean air campaign

Posted on October 16, 2002

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency joined Cleveland Mayor Jane L. Campbell in the launch of a stakeholder-led effort to reduce air toxics for Cleveland's school children and residents. The project, "Cleveland Clean Air Century Campaign," is a voluntary, community-based initiative to reduce toxic air pollution in Northeast Ohio, with a focus on transportation, schools, homes and businesses. "Cleveland is showing the rest of the country how much can be done when a community challenges itself to move as fast, as far and as creatively as possible to improve air quality," Campbell said. This new project is an outgrowth of the Cleveland Air Toxics Pilot Project, begun in March 2001 by the EPA. A 30-member volunteer working group decided to launch the Century Campaign to increase air quality improvement beyond pilot project levels. Goals of the Century Campaign are to implement projects that achieve measurable emission reductions within a few years; enlist at least 100 Cleveland businesses and organizations to support the campaign; demonstrate a model for community-level environment action that can be sustained over time and replicated in other communities across the United States. Projects now underway include: school bus retrofits, household hazardous waste collection, transit bus fuel replacement and local toxics emissions inventory.
