The California Air Resources Board has developed
an Air Quality and Land Use Handbook (Handbook), which is intended to
serve as a general reference guide for evaluating and reducing air
pollution impacts associated with new projects that go through the land
process. This guide provides recommendations regarding the siting of new sensitive land uses near freeways, distribution centers, rail yards, ports, refineries, chrome plating facilities, dry cleaners, and gasoline dispensing facilities. In addition to these recommendations, this report also encourages land use agencies to use their planning processes to ensure the appropriate separation of industrial facilities and sensitive land uses, such as schools and day care facilities.
