In 2014, the Board of County Commissioners ("BCC") established the Sustainability Commission ("Commission") to create an informational clearinghouse and an open compendium of sustainability best practices.

With the passage of Resolution CC20-254, the BCC declared addressing Climate Change as a critical priority for the County and resolved to develop a Climate Action Plan.  For more details, click on the left tab titled Climate Action Plan.  

Jefferson County and Community First Foundation ("CFF") have signed an Intergovernmental Agreement that will create a Sustainability Commission Fund which will enable CFF to accept tax-deductible donations in support of this effort.  Donations could be used, for example, to retain a consultant to prepare a Climate Action Plan as well as other Commission lead efforts approved by the BCC.

Stay tuned on how to make donations to the Fund and support this important issue facing Jefferson County.
