Union City's proposed Climate Action Plan
Submitted By Carmela Campbell
The City of Union City has just released a draft Climate Action Plan (CAP) and is eager to hear the community's feedback. A special Climate Action Plan Community Meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15 at the Holly Community Center, 31600 Alvarado Boulevard, Union City. Attendees will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions and will be entered automatically into a raffle to win a fabulous prize that will help reduce their carbon footprint.
Union City's CAP (online at www.UnionCity.org) will be the blueprint to identify how residents, businesses and government can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to global warming. Building on initiatives and actions already begun by the City, the draft CAP describes short, medium and long-term strategies and related implementation measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the community. The measures are broken down into six action areas that include: Land Use, Transportation, Building Energy, Waste, Water and Green Infrastructure. The measures seek to decrease dependency on oil and natural gas, increase the use of renewable resources, improve air quality, reduce solid waste and reduce water and energy consumption by residents, businesses, institutions and municipal operations.
For more information or to be added to the City's mailing list to receive updates regarding the City's Climate Action Plan process, please contact Carmela Campbell, Planning Manager at (510) 675-5316 or email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
