Climate Project


The City has embarked on a project to develop a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. A Climate Committee has been established that meets on a regular basis to develop and review this plan.

The Committee’s Mission Statement is: We will assess the threats and challenges of climate change as they relate to our community by seeking input from experts and local constituents. We will use these inputs to develop actionable plans to mitigate those threats and educate the community.

Please see below the documents and information shared at each meeting. If you would like to be added to the Climate Project distribution list to get information about upcoming meetings, please email
