All are welcome to attend and provide feedback during an upcoming community meeting to discuss Iowa City’s Climate Action Plan.   

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017, in Meeting Room A of the Iowa City Public Library, 123 S. Linn St.

People are encouraged to share their perspectives and participate during open format, interactive sessions. Participants will visit various stations and vote on strategies they think are most important for Iowa City. They are also invited to participate in a ‘tell us’ writing exercise where they can make additional comments. Childcare will be provided starting at 5:45 p.m., in Meeting Room D.

The Climate Action Steering Committee, representing a variety of community groups and organizations, is tasked with developing Iowa City’s first ever Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, which will include ways to achieve community-wide greenhouse gas reduction targets, in addition to creating a more livable, equitable and resilient Iowa City. Committee members, consultants and City staff will be available to ask questions and listen to feedback during the meeting.

Widespread community input is vital for this effort to succeed. We encourage all to attend.

Stay connected to the project by participating in a Facebook Live chat beginning at noon on Monday, Oct. 30 on the City of Iowa City Facebook page. Sustainability Coordinator Brenda Nations will talk about Iowa City’s Climate Action Plan, and take questions about it and the upcoming community meeting.
