What Your Giving Day Contribution Pays For
Creation of the North Texas Clean Air Network
But we also wanted to make sure it would be a tool for citizen empowerment, so we insisted on having public and public health advocate seats on the board overseeing the new network.
Each governing entity joining the network appoints a staff person or elected official. But they also appoint a public representative as well.
This new independent network will eventually supersede the obsolete system currently run by the state and federal government. It’ll become the default way DFW residents check their air. It’ll bring challenges and changes to environmental enforcement, zoning and land use planning, and even the timing of traffic lights. It gives citizens and local governments a powerful new tool.
