What is the City's Commitment to Climate Action?

In March of 2015 our City Council unanimously adopted the following accelerated climate action goals for our community:

  • 20 percent below 2005 levels by 2020
  • 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2030
  • Carbon neutral by 2050

Our community plays an important role in implementing our Climate Action Plan and we are excited to collaboratively take action for the health of our community, environment and economy.
