Climate Action Plan: Public Meeting Slated For Tonight

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 11:59 AM

The city of Cleveland's Climate Action Plan, part of the Sustainable Cleveland 2019 campaign, is taking shape. A public meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. today at Tri-C's Metro Campus Center Building, Room 10.

Like many instances of targeted environmental reform, the plan revolves around decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. Goals include cutting emissions in half by 2030 and nearly completely by 2050.

Tonight's meeting will solicit public opinion on potential systemic reforms, as well as individual habits that can add up to a healthier community. Areas of impact thus far include "energy efficiency and green building, advanced and renewable energy, transportation, waste and land use and clean water."

Talks will surely continue throughout next few months, with hopes that the plan will be completely drafted by July.
