The Richmond Climate Action Plan (CAP) is a roadmap for how the City will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of climate change on public health, infrastructure, ecosystems, and public spaces in our community. The CAP will support the community’s goals and policies identified in the City’s General Plan 2030. The CAP also features health equity and climate justice as important aspects of the document framework, consistent with City’s Health in All Policies Strategy.
The Draft CAP was released on Friday, July 22, 2016, for a 30-day public review and comment period. On Tuesday, October 25, 2016, the Richmond City Council will receive a presentation and consider adopting a resolution approving an Addendum to the Richmond General Plan Update Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and the final Climate Action Plan (CAP) (Item I-1). The CAP and all appendices can be accessed following the links below; printed copies are available for review at the Richmond libraries and the Planning and Building Services Public Counter at 450 Civic Center Plaza (Second Floor).
