District Governing Board

The North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District (District) is overseen by a Governing Board which establishes policy, enacts new rules and approves the annual budget.

The Governing Board appoints the District's Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) and the District Hearing Board. The Governing Board typically meets monthly where the meeting dates and notices are posted on the Governing Board Calendar and are subject to the Brown Act. The meetings, agendas and materials are available from this website or the Clerk of the Board. If you would like to notified of upcoming Board Meetings or public events, sign up for our email list server.

The District operates on a fiscal year budgetary system which is approved by the Board. The annual budget adoption process is clearly defined by the California Health & Safety Code and includes a series of public hearings. A copy of the current budget can be obtained by contacting the District at

The District's Governing Board is comprised of five members representing the jurisdiction of the District. Four of the five members are elected officials that are appointed by the respective Board of Supervisors of the counties served, and one member is a city representative who is selected by a committee comprised of mayors of the incorporated cities that are within the District.
