History

Alarmed by the deteriorating air quality in Cumberland County caused by PM 2.5 (soot), as noted in the following August 2005 public letter signed by over three-quarters of Cumberland County physicians, a faith-based group of concerned citizens formed the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania (CAB).

With input from residents, educators, health professionals, government, and industry, CAB’s goals are to raise community awareness and to have air pollution in Central Pennsylvania reduced to levels at which our air is safe to breathe.

Mission

The Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania is a faith-based citizens’ initiative dedicated to achieving clean air to protect our health and quality of life.

We accomplish our mission by:

raising public awareness of air quality issues

advocating, promoting and coordinating policy and practices for clean air

monitoring air quality

Pennsylvania Constitution Declaration of Rights

The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people.
