 ADVISORY WORKING GROUPS

In Fall 2018, the CASC convened topic specific working groups to support the development of the Bend Community Climate Action Plan in the areas of energy supply, energy in buildings, transportation, and waste and materials. The working groups, made up of subject matter experts, key stakeholders, and interested community members, played a vital role in brainstorming and developing potential actions the community can take to reduce our fossil fuel use.
