Albany’s first Climate Action Plan (CAP), adopted in 2010, is nearing completion after years of implementation. The City’s General Plan sets forth ambitious goals of 60% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2035 and net zero emissions by 2050. To achieve these goals, City of Albany has developed a new Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) following an extensive public engagement process. The CAAP aims to reduce emissions and adapt to a changing climate.

The DRAFT 2019 Climate Action and Adaptation Plan is now available for public review. The City is soliciting public comment from the community at this time. The public comment period is open until July 19.
