Wood Stove Replacement Program

Release Date: 
08/27/2013

Are you concerned about the amount of smog that occurs in the City in the wintertime? Wood burning is one of the main contributors to this problem.

To encourage the replacement of older, inefficient wood stoves, the City has developed a zero interest loan program for replacing your wood burning stove with a newer, more energy efficient heating system. By converting to a new heating system you will not only increase fuel efficiency (i.e. SAVE YOU MONEY), but you will also improve the air quality of our great city.

Stay tuned for another article coming soon regarding renewed funding for this program. In the meantime, click here to learn more about this program from Public Works.

Gas tax sunsets

The City of Pendleton’s local $0.04 per gallon gas tax sunset on March 11, 2013. The purpose of the voter approved gas tax was to fund the debt service for the Airport Connector Road Project completed in late-2010. On March 7, 2013, letters were hand-delivered to gas station managers and mailed to gas station owners. Final payment from gas stations were due on or before March 25, 2013. No additional payments have been collected by the City of Pendleton since.

Air Education Program @ SMS

In  fall,  2008,  the  Pendleton  Air  Quality  Commission  (AQC)  began  an  Air Education Program at Sunridge Middle School with three seventh grade science classrooms.  Students learned about a variety of air quality issues such as health issues, air quality monitoring, criteria pollutants, and air pollution sources.  The students kept track of the daily air quality forecast for one month and were asked to write an essay on air quality at the end of the program.

Air Quality Commission

The Pendleton Air Quality Commission (AQC) was established in January of 1991 to address air quality issues in Pendleton.  Our main purpose has been to educate the public.  We have focused on three areas of concern: 1) Health Issues.  This includes both short- and long-term respiratory problems, with an understanding that children, elderly, and individuals with allergies, asthma, emphysema and other specific health problems are at greatest risk.  2) Quality of Life Issues.  Although difficult to describe, this includes the ability to enjoy clean air and clear blue s
