Air quality open houses planned for this week

From The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:

The Fairbanks North Star Borough is hosting two air quality open houses this week to discuss a proposal to curb air pollution, a borough announcement said.

The first open house takes place today at West Valley High School Performing Arts Center. The second open house is Wednesday in the Weller Elementary School gym. Both start at 5 p.m.

The announcement said experts will be available to discuss air quality issues, such as PM 2.5, and answer questions about a range of issues, including regulatory deadlines, the proposed wood stove exchange program and recommended wood burning practices.
