Join us on March 16th at 6:00 PM for the 2nd Virtual Climate Workshop to shape and steer the Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan! We will be working with Cascadia Consulting to review the plan's list of 71 actions and a multicriteria analysis that was performed on 35 of the actions in order to prioritize them more effectively. Your input and assistance is vital to better prioritize these actions based upon your personal experiences.
The City and community of Port Angeles is developing a Climate Resiliency Plan to inventory and reduce its community and municipal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while building resilience to climate change impacts and related stressors. The City wants to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, which exceeds WA State GHG Emissions reduction goals, established in E2SHB 2311 and RCW 70A.45.020.
The Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan will build on current and prior work and identify new opportunities for ambitious, feasible, and equitable climate action that reduces Port Angeles’ GHG emissions and builds readiness for climate impacts like sea level rise and increased flooding.
Public outreach and participation are essential to this process, and the City is committed to centering equity and respect for all community members. This will lead to a Climate Resiliency Plan that reflects the communities’ priorities and values, builds capacity and interest in sustainable behavioral change from residents, and increases the community buy-in that is important for successful long-term implementation of the Resiliency Plan. This is the first of two Public Workshops to support the development of the Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan. The workshop will focus on prioritizing actions directed by the Plan.
