Climate Action Plan

On August 25, 2020, members of the Sustainability Commission, in partnership with Public Health, met with the County Commissioners to brief them on the unfolding climate change crisis and ask for their approval for a Climate Action Plan ("CAP").  

On September 15, 2020, the Board approved and declared Climate Change a critical priority for Jefferson County with the passage of Resolution CC20-254, Acknowledging the Global Climate Crisis and Affirming the County's Commitment to Climate Action.

With the passage of Resolution CC20-254, members will now begin to formulate an implementation plan for the CAP creation.  It is anticipated, an RFP for a consultant will be issued early 2021 and working work with county staff, commission members and Jefferson County Public Health finalizing the Plan late 2021.

Details and associated timeline will be posted here as they become available.
