City Updates Climate Plan

 

Alameda is vulnerable to climate change, which could bring about sea level rise, drought, flooding and extreme heat. These could result in epidemics or food shortages. The City of Alameda is updating its Climate Action Plan to show how its residents can reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to this climate change. This update would include identifying climate risks, assessing options such as wetlands and levees and implementing the most sustainable course of action as climate change impacts evolve.  

The city has teamed up with Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) to co-sponsor a workshop to brainstorm the next steps for updating the plan and for making Alameda a more sustainable city. The workshop will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m., next Thursday, Oct. 5, at the Main Library, 1550 Oak St. 

The city will also address updating the plan at the following meetings, each held at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. 

  • Public Utilities Board, Monday, Oct. 16
  • Planning Board, Monday, Oct. 23
  • Transportation Commission Wednesday, Nov. 15
  • City Council, Tuesday, Dec. 5.
