Adopted in June 2005, the Strategic Toxic Air Reduction (STAR) Program is a regulatory program to reduce harmful contaminants in the air we breathe. With STAR's help, Louisville has made great strides toward improving air quality and the quality of life for local residents. For more information please visit the STAR Program webpage.
The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District developed the STAR Advisory Group to ask for advice from industry representatives, community groups, and environmental advocates about how to make the STAR regulations clearer and more useful. The District’s goal is to ensure that the program is clear so that residents and the regulated community understand the program requirements and implementation policies. It is important to note that the District is not proposing to weaken any of the standards set forth by the STAR Program to protect Louisville’s air quality.
The STAR Advisory Group met from February to April 2009 to discuss concerns and best practices for advancing the STAR Program. See the complete list of meetings for more information.
