City receives Clean Air Award

The city of Burbank was honored this week at the South Coast Air

Quality Management District’s 15th annual Clean Air Awards ceremony

for making significant contributions to air quality in the past year.

Presented at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los


Angeles, the award recognized the city’s innovative transportation

projects, with its two Metrolink stations and low-emission shuttle

services that connect commuters to the trains. The city was also

praised for recycling, water and power conservation, and


environmentally sensitive zoning.

Eight other people and organizations were honored at the awards,

including UCLA, state Sen. Byron Sher (D-Stanford) and the

environmental group Communities for a Better Environment.
