West County Climate Action Plan Workshop

September 26th, 6:30-8:00 PM

On Thursday, September 26, the County hosted a community meeting in Crockett to get community input on the draft goals and strategies for the Climate Action Plan.  West County residents at the meeting were emphatic that they want the Climate Action Plan to address the impacts of refineries and other large industrial facilities on health, environment, and climate, particularly for those communities that are located near these facilities.  Participants at the Crockett meeting want the County be aggressive in its timeline for taking action on climate issues, and ambitious in its goals.  Meeting participants recommended the County look at the Our County sustainability plan adopted in August by Los Angeles County.
