Salem Climate Action Plan, Final Draft

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The plan shown below is the result of a year-long process involving many stakeholders across the Salem community. We invite you to review the Final Draft of the Salem Climate Action Plan and email your comments to us at SalemCAP@cityofsalem.net. Links to the plan and other important links are provided as follows.

The final draft includes minor changes from the preliminary draft published in October. Some changes are based on public comment, some are editorial, and some are due to new information (such as the Greenhouse Gas Forecasts in Chapter 7, which were revised with new data from NW Natural). We have prepared a summary of changes that occurred between versions.

Due to the number of public comments received so far and the newly updated version of the plan, it has been decided that more time is needed for both the Salem City Council and the community to review the plan and provide additional comments. Therefore, the public comment period remains open and there will be an informational report provided at the December 6 council meeting. The staff report for the December 6 meeting will include recommended strategies for early implementation. There will not be a public hearing about the climate action plan on December 6.

We are keeping the comment period open until the plan goes to Council for approval (date to be determined). If you would like to provide public comment, please email SalemCAP@cityofsalem.net. Comments can also be mailed to Salem Climate Action Plan Comments, 555 Liberty St SE, Suite 325, Salem, Oregon, 97301-3515.
