Last Call for Comments on Rockville’s Climate Action Plan

Don’t miss a chance to provide comments on Rockville’s first draft Climate Action Plan.

Public comments will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 3 at www.rockvillemd.gov/climate, where the draft plan is available for review.

The Mayor and Council reviewed the plan during their meeting on Monday, Nov. 15. Find video of the discussion, a staff report and the plan with the Nov. 15 Mayor and Council agenda at www.rockville

With the Climate Action Plan, city government is working with community members to develop a comprehensive list of actions to equitably reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and build community resiliency.

The Mayor and Council are expected to hold a discussion of the plan later this winter with possible adoption of the plan in early spring.

Over the past year, the city’s Environmental Management Division held virtual public meetings and online office hours and conducted surveys to solicit community input on the plan. A virtual open house was held in the summer to get feedback from the community on the draft plan goals, a pathway to greenhouse gas reduction and a draft list of 41 actions. After a year of community engagement, the city received robust feedback from more than 575 respondents.

Find full results of the community feedback and view a draft list of actions at www.rockvillemd.gov/climate.
