An advisory body to the City Council to develop recommendations to implement the City's Community Climate Action Plan, and provide a continuing venue for input and evaluation of City policies and actions relating to the community's stewardship of natural resources and the environment.
The City is actively recruiting nine positions for the Environment and Climate Committee (ECC) until July 31, 2020.
The Committee's primary focus is to provide input and recommendations to the City Council on topics related to environmental stewardship and to oversee implementation of the Community Climate Action Plan, adopted in December 2019.
We are seeking individuals who have experience or expertise, professional or lived, in the following or other related subject matters: energy efficiency, renewable energy, energy efficient building, environmental justice, equity in environmental stewardship and sustainability, alternative transportation and mobility, energy policy, environmental policy, forestry, water resources, ecology, other life sciences, carbon emission reduction, and other related areas. We seek inclusive membership of diverse and varied perspectives and experience.
This committee will help fulfill current and future Council goals and projects related to environmental stewardship, and provide a resource to Council when relevant community issues arise. The ECC will:
- Develop recommendations and build partnerships to advance implementation of the Community Climate Action Plan;
- Provide input in the City's review and development of plans, ordinances, actions, and policies as relevant
- Provide advisory input to the City Council during Council goal setting and budgeting processes; and
- Provide input on adopted Council goals as they relate to natural resources and the environment.
