There is an immense amount of public concern about the toxic fumes emanating from the All American Asphalt plant and their impact on those residing in and around Planning Area 6. Volunteer UCI professors conducted studies confirming that the toxic fumes are seriously hazardous to the health of local residents. Voice of OC | Biesiada The South Coast Air Quality Management District has failed, and continues to fail, to take action to resolve the air quality issue.

Irvine has a duty to protect the health and safety of Irvine residents

The City of Irvine should delay all development related approvals relating to development projects located in the impacted planning areas until such time that AQMD resolves the air contamination issue.
