The City of Livermore (City) is holding a public meeting to provide information and answer questions about the draft Climate Action Plan (CAP) released in early August. City staff and consultants will be on hand to answer the public’s questions related to this document.
The draft CAP outlines voluntary measures that will reduce greenhouse gas emission levels produced within the City. The reduction goal of 15 percent below 2008 conditions by 2020 was adopted in the Climate Change Element of the Livermore 2025 General Plan. Implementation of the CAP will support the statewide effort to reduce emissions in California to 1990 levels by 2020 under Assembly Bill 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act.
The draft document will be considered by the Planning Commission in October and by the City Council in November.
Some emission-reduction activities included in the draft CAP are related to increasing the use of clean, renewable energy; making transportation choices that result in fewer emissions; recycling and reusing; and increasing water conservation efforts.
The draft CAP is now available at http://www.cityoflivermore.net/citygov/cd/planning/cap/default.asp. The City encourages meeting participants to review the document prior to attending the meeting.
