Community-Driven Climate Action Planning

The 2010 Community Climate and Energy Action Plan (CEAP) has guided a number of City, community-based, and local partner agency efforts. As part of the direction from City Council in 2016, the City identified updating the CEAP as an organizational priority in 2018. As a result, staff began work on a CEAP progress report and a draft of a new Community Climate Action Plan (CAP2.0). 

A draft of the updated City of Eugene Climate Action Plan 2.0 was completed November 2019. City staff spent the following 7 months editing the document guided by recommendations from the Mayor’s CRO Ad Hoc Work Group and community input. A draft was released July 6, 2020, with an updated draft published July 23, 2020. The final version of the updated CAP 2.0 was approved July 2020.

Additional Strategies

Over the course of 2019, City Council considered 12 Additional Strategies to add to Eugene’s CAP2.0 that go beyond the plans and policies already in place.  These strategies provide a pathway for the City to reach the CRO goals.  These actions will be added to the next CAP2.0 draft with the recognition that they each require additional research, policy decisions or funding as next steps. You can see the 12 Additional Strategies here.

Reconvened the Mayors CRO Ad Hoc Work Group

In February 2020, the City reconvened the Mayor’s CRO Ad Hoc Work Group to provide additional feedback on the Draft CAP2.0.  You can find more information about the Work Group here
