The City of Eugene has released an updated draft of the Climate Action Plan 2.0 (CAP2.0). This iteration of the CAP2.0 builds on the first draft released in November 2019 and includes significant changes recommended by the Mayor’s Climate Recovery Ordinance Ad Hoc Work Group and other community members since the first draft was released. The City Council will review and hear from the community about the document over the course of July.
“This draft focuses on the data. We got specific about what climate change is projected to mean for Eugene by 2100 – it’s impacts on our weather, water, and more,” said Chelsea Clinton, Sustainability Manager. “We committed to action to mitigate the impacts of climate change and to create a more resilient community and focused our engagement to grow community capacity to address climate change.”
Changes to this draft document include more actions and more details about those actions; more data with specifics on the path to meet the goals of Climate Recovery Ordinance in the transportation, building energy and fugitive emissions sectors; a timeline; a chapter dedicated to consumption-based emissions; and new focus sections on housing, transportation, and urban forestry.
The Eugene City Council will review the document and hear from the community during the month of July:
- July 8 – CAP2.0 City Council Work Session
- July 13 – City Council Public Forum
- July 15 – CAP2.0 City Council Work Session
- July 27 – City Council Public Forum
