Mayor's Climate Recovery Ordinance Ad Hoc Work Group

The Mayor's Climate Recovery Ordinance Ad Hoc Work Group reconvened on Feb. 12, 2020.

The Community Climate Action Plan 2.0 (CAP2.0) is Eugene’s roadmap to achieving the community climate action goals in the CRO as well as a climate resiliency plan. The purpose of the Mayor’s Climate Recovery Ordinance Ad Hoc Work Group is to provide guidance on how to modify the Draft CAP2.0 and to provide input on additional actions to add to the plan to fully meet the CRO goals. The Work Group will provide guidance on the following:


  • The high-level topics, or themes, that should guide the document revision process
  • Evaluation criteria for additional actions to add to the plan
  • Additional actions to add to the CAP2.0 to achieve CRO goals, including some prioritization of the suggested additional actions
  • CAP2.0 community engagement process moving forward
