Taking a Swing at Air Pollution from a Municipal Level

  • Erin Mendenhall Salt Lake City Council Member

Abstract

Air quality, or lack thereof, is more of a public concern than ever before in our state’s history. Serious and valid concern from Utahns has focused the public policy debate surrounding this issue and draws political and media attention, both locally and nationally. Though significantly poor air quality days are statistically few and far between, they have an immediate impact on the health of our residents, which researchers tell us can translate into long-term health conditions.
