International Border Community

The International Border Community encompasses parts of San Ysidro and Otay Mesa East. It was added in 2022 to the Community Air Protection Program by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Currently, APCD is in the process of forming a steering committee to develop and advise on air quality improvement strategies. If you are interested in being part of this committee, please complete an  application  and email it to

Steering Committee Meetings

The Steering Committee is comprised of residents and stakeholders representing various interests in the community. The Steering Committee meets monthly virtually via Zoom video conferencing.  All meetings are held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A link to join the meeting will be added below approximately one week prior to the meeting. Members of the public are encouraged to attend. If you have any problems, contact the facilitator at
