STEERING COMMITTEE (CASC)
A plan to reduce fossil fuel use in Bend
The CCAP is a set of strategies and actions that will guide both the City and the community as we work together to achieve fossil fuel reduction goals established by City Council Resolution 3044. The actions will encourage and incentivize businesses and residents, through voluntary efforts, to reduce GHG emissions and fossil fuel use.
Climate Action Goals:
- Reduce community-wide fossil fuel use by 40% by 2030
- Reduce community-wide fossil fuel use by 70% by 2050
Climate Action Vision: Neighbors businesses, and community leaders working together to preserve our natural environment while promoting economic opportunity and resilience for current and future generations.
Achieving our goals together
The City of Bend convened a Climate Action Steering Committee (CASC) to engage the community and guide CCAP development because the City recognizes that we alone cannot achieve community-wide fossil fuel use reduction goals. The City must work with the community to share responsibility for reducing overall fossil fuel use, and community members must be willing to act. The CASC was made up of 13 individuals appointed by City Council who represent Bend's diverse community, including the business community, the environmental community, youth community, other local government and institutions, and at-large members.
The CCAP directed the City to create a new committee that will oversee implementation of the Plan and develop specific policy and program recommendations for the Council to implement the CCAP strategies. More information about that Committee to come.
