NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to the State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725, is hereby given of a public hearing on May 11, 2016, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering adoption of proposed amendments to Rule 11 – Exemptions from Rule 10 Permit Requirements, and Rule 66.1 – Miscellaneous Surface Coating Operations and Other Processes Emitting Volatile Organic Compounds. 

Rule 11 provides permit exemptions for equipment, operations, and processes that are negligible sources of air pollutant emissions.  The proposed amendments will add a number of new permit exemptions, update the criteria for certain other exemptions, and improve clarity.  Upon rule adoption, permits for newly exempt equipment may be retired.  Owners/operators of equipment for which a permit is newly required will have up to one year to submit a permit application.

In addition, corresponding amendments are proposed for Rule 66.1.  Specifically, a proposed new exemption has been added for solvent cleaning operations (for the clean-up of products, equipment, and general work areas) using 550 gallons or less of solvent per year, facility wide.  Cleaning solvents used in amounts at or below this threshold would be exempt from the volatile organic compound limits in Rule 66.1 and exempt from permit requirements pursuant to Rule 11.

Amended Rule 11 and amended Rule 66.1, if adopted, will be submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to replace existing Rule 11 and Rule 66.1 in the San Diego County portion of the State Implementation Plan.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:

Angela M. Ortega, Rule Development Supervisor

San Diego County Air Pollution Control District

10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, CA  92131

The proposed amendments to Rule 11 and Rule 66.1 may be examined or obtained at the Air Pollution Control District Headquarters, 10124 Old Grove Road, San Diego, CA  92131, or by visiting the District's website at http://www.sdapcd.org/content/sdc/apcd/en/Rule_Development/Public_Hearings.html.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to the State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725, is hereby given of a public hearing on May 11, 2016, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering adoption of proposed new Rule 67.12.1 – Polyester Resin Operations. Proposed new Rule 67.12.1 limits volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from polyester resin materials and cleaning solvents used in the manufacture of composite products such as aerospace components, synthetic marble products, surfboards, and boats. It will replace outdated Rule 67.12 – Polyester Resin Operations.  Rule 67.12.1 also satisfies federal requirements to implement Reasonably Available Control Technology and state requirements for implementing all feasible control measures to reduce VOC emissions. 

Proposed new Rule 67.12.1 reflects the development of new, lower VOC content polyester resin materials and cleaning solvents, and updates record keeping requirements and test methods.  If adopted, proposed new Rule 67.12.1 will take effect in one year for existing facilities, and existing Rule 67.12 will be automatically repealed at that time.  This one year grace period provides time for affected businesses to use their existing inventories of conventional polyester resin materials and then transition to the new lower emitting materials required by Rule 67.12.1.  Any future new operations must comply with new Rule 67.12.1 upon startup.

A written analysis comparing the proposed new rule with applicable requirements of federal and local regulations was prepared pursuant to state law and is available upon request.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:

AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE, pursuant to the State of California Health and Safety Code Section 40725, is hereby given of a public hearing on April 27, 2016, at 9:00 a.m., before the Air Pollution Control Board of the County of San Diego, in Room 310, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, for the purpose of receiving public comments on and considering adoption of proposed amendments to New Source Review Rule 20.1 – General Provisions, Rule 20.2 – Non-Major Stationary Sources, Rule 20.3 – Major Stationary Sources and PSD Stationary Sources, Rule 20.4 – Portable Emission Units and Rule 20.6 – Standards for Permit to Operate Air Quality Analysis.  Rules 20.1, 20.2, 20.3, 20.4 and 20.6 regulate emissions of air contaminants from new and modified facilities requiring permits from the Air Pollution Control District.  Since the adoption of current Rules 20.1 – 20.4 in 1998, changes to federal and State regulations regarding New Source Review make it necessary to update these rules. 

Proposed amended Rules 20.1 – 20.4 require that new, modified, relocated and replacement emission units at stationary sources, including portable emission units, be evaluated to ensure they are constructed with advanced emission control technologies and that any increased emissions will not cause adverse ambient air quality impacts.  For very large sources of increased oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compound emissions, offsetting emission reductions are also required.  The rules require public notice and public comment periods before approving permits for emissions increases above specified levels.  The proposed amendments incorporate revised federal and State requirements, and will be submitted to the State Air Resources Board and federal Environmental Protection Agency for approval.  The amendments to Rules 20.1, 20.2 and 20.3 will not become effective until approved by both agencies.  The amendments to Rule 20.4 contain some regulatory relief for portable emission units requiring permits from the Air Pollution Control District.  The amendments to Rule 20.6 will update its references to provisions of Rules 20.1 – 20.4.  Amended Rules 20.4 and 20.6 will become effective upon adoption. 

A written analysis comparing the proposed amended rules with applicable requirements of federal and local regulations was prepared pursuant to State law and is available upon request.

The Board may consider modifications to the proposal, which may be deemed appropriate.  Written comments are also invited.  Comments should be addressed to:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION:   The project proposes amendments to the existing County Water Conservation in Landscaping Ordinance to address the recent update to the State’s Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO).  The amendments would assure that the County’s Ordinance is as effective as the MWELO while increasing water conservation efforts in conjunction with new and modified development landscapes.  

SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE:  Ordinance amending the San Diego County Code related to Water Conservation in Landscaping; POD 15-003. This ordinance will amend the existing Water Conservation in Landscaping Ordinance, San Diego County Code of Regulatory Ordinances section 86.701 et seq. for purposes of consistency with the State Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance

Notice is hereby given that the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on April 12, 2016, at 9 a.m. in Room 310 of the County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, California, to consider the revised Citizen Participation Plan, FY 2016-17 Annual Funding Plan and an amendment to the FY 2015-16 Annual Funding Plan. The Board will consider the proposed use of: $3,685,803 in CDBG funds; $2,315,777 in HOME funds; $326,919 in ESG funds; and $2,855,967 in HOPWA funds that the County will receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the FY 2016-17 Annual Funding Plan, along with an estimated $625,000 in FY 2016-17 CDBG and HOME program revenues, and the reallocation of up to $3,851,500 in previous years’ CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA entitlements.

The Annual Funding Plan describes proposed activities to be funded from FY 2016-17, and previous year entitlements, which must meet the goals established in the County Five-Year Consolidated Plan.  The Citizen Participation Plan outlines the citizen participation process during the development of, or substantial change to, the Consolidated and Annual Funding Plans. 

The CDBG program provides funding to the County's unincorporated area and the cities of Coronado, Del Mar, Imperial Beach, Lemon Grove, Poway and Solana Beach.  CDBG funds must: (1) benefit lower-income persons; (2) prevent/eliminate slums and blight; or (3) meet urgent community development needs.  The HOME program funds affordable housing activities within the County HOME Consortium.  The HOME Consortium includes the CDBG areas, plus the cities of Carlsbad, Encinitas, La Mesa, San Marcos, Santee and Vista.  The ESG program funds homeless assistance in the CDBG areas and the HOPWA program funds housing/services for persons with HIV/AIDS and their families throughout San Diego County.

I. CDBG PROGRAM. CDBG Cities: $448,978; Unincorporated Area: $1,712,620; Urban County Housing Programs: $1,209,144; Funding to Benefit Low-/Moderate-Income Persons: $2,995,887. Program Administration - Urban County:  $315,061; Recommended CDBG funding from previous year entitlements: up to $1,138,362. II. HOME PROGRAM. Consortium (benefiting Low-/Moderate-Income): $1,904,200; Program Administration: $231,577; Recommended HOME funding from previous year entitlements: up to $2,500,000 III. ESG PROGRAM. Urban County (benefiting Low-/Moderate-Income): $302,401; Program Administration: $24,518; Recommended ESG funding from previous year entitlements: up to $31,000. IV. HOPWA PROGRAM. HOPWA projects (benefiting Low-/Moderate-Income): $2,770,288; Program Administration: $85,679; Recommended HOPWA funding from previous year entitlements: up to $182,138.

The amendment to the FY 2015-16 Annual Funding Plan is for the reallocation of up to $925,000 in CDBG funds for the purchase of fire apparatus and/or fire equipment to serve low-moderate income service area(s). This proposed reallocation amends the previously approved FY 2015-16 County of San Diego Consortium Annual Funding Plan because the project was not previously identified, and the current County Citizen Participation Plan requires the project be assessed through a 30-day public review.

Copies of the draft Plans are available for public review and comment during the 30-day comment period from March 18, 2016, through April 18, 2016, on the County website at www.sdhcd.com or at the County of San Diego Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) office located at 3989 Ruffin Road, San Diego, California  92123.  Persons needing assistance to participate in the meetings (e.g., non-English speaking, hearing-impaired, etc.) should notify HCD five days prior to the meeting to be held on April 12, 2016.
