A new survey from the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District is asking the public to weigh in on the District’s efforts to engage with and inform the community on air quality and the environment.

The District will use the information collected in the online survey to develop a series of community workshops.

The goal of the workshop series, slated to begin this spring, is to give the public a better understanding of the District’s work, while also offering a space where the community can discuss ways to continue improving Louisville’s air.

“Informed communities are more likely to support programs and policies that improve air quality,” said Michelle King, APCD Director of Program Planning. “And informed individuals are more likely to change behaviors to reduce their own emissions and exposure to poor air quality.”

The survey is online now, and will stay online until April 30.

APCD Environmental Coordinator Torend Collins is overseeing the development of the workshop series.

“Community engagement is an important part of the work we do at the APCD,” Collins said. “So the results will not only assist with developing workshops, but will also help us better understand what the community knows about our agency.”
