Updated Draft Community Climate Action Plan 2.0 Coming July 2020
After 2.5 years of community engagement and research, the City of Eugene is poised to publish the community’s updated climate action plan, or CAP2.0. The draft of this Plan was initially released in November 2019 and has since been updated with guidance from the Mayor’s CRO Ad Hoc Work Group. The CAP 2.0 is the update from Eugene's 2010 Climate and Energy Action Plan.
A unique plan that focuses on agency and partner commitments, the CAP 2.0 identifies high impact practices among community partners that have larger, system level impacts. The Plan also elevates the concerns of frontline communities who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Utilizing input from a diverse range of community partners, this Plan represents the voice and aspirations of the community as we work together to reduce our emissions and achieve the climate goals set forth by the Climate Recovery Ordinance.
City Council will hear from staff about the CAP 2.0 process and document starting in July. Here is a list of upcoming dates as City Council works towards approval of the CAP2.0:
