Sept. 8, 2021 – The Town of Carbondale and CLEER will hold a public input session on Thursday, Sept. 23, to help guide the town’s strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate change.
The event will be held in the Community Hall of the Third Street Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Participants may also attend online by signing up at the CLEER website (www.cleanenergyeconomy.net). Masks will be required to attend in person.
Climate protection is one of Carbondale residents’ top issues, according to a survey conducted this summer as part of the town’s comprehensive plan update. The Sept. 23 session is designed to update residents on the town’s climate actions and progress to date, and to gather input to ensure that climate concerns are addressed in the updated comp plan.
Suggestions for specific action steps may also be incorporated into the town’s Climate and Energy Action Plan, a separate document.
Local experts will make brief presentations on climate opportunities and challenges in the areas of transportation, buildings, renewable energy, waste, water, trees and potentially other topics. Participants will then form breakout groups to offer ideas and solutions.
