Welcome to Pasadena Citizens’ Advisory Council (PCAC)

Pasadena Citizens’ Advisory Council (PCAC) builds a partnership between industry and community in Pasadena, Texas.  At meetings held 9 times a year, we provide a forum for candid conversation about industry-related issues of community interest or concern.

Open, honest dialogue makes plant members aware of what the community expects of them.  It helps community members understand what plants do and how they work.

The primary issues we address are environment, safety, health, security, emergency response and communications, and hazardous materials transportation.  We also discuss other quality of life issues like the economy and education.

Our community members include individuals who live or work in Pasadena and representatives of organizations and government entities serving the city.  Our 17 Houston Ship Channel plant members include the major industrial facilities in Pasadena.
 

Come to a PCAC Meeting!
