Planning & Development Services (PDS) staff continues to implement the County's Climate Action Plan (CAP) Public Outreach and Engagement Plan by enlisting numerous local stakeholders and regional collaborators. Throughout Summer 2016, PDS staff met individually and held four visioning sessions with business groups, environmental nonprofits, representatives of academia, and climate planning professionals to understand the climate planning priorities of each industry. A visioning session was also held with the Community Planning/Sponsor Group Chairs in August 2016.
In September 2016, PDS will host two public workshops to inform attendees on the input provided during the stakeholder meetings and visioning sessions, and to solicit feedback on potential GHG reduction strategies/measures. The workshops have been scheduled on the following dates:
- Monday, September 26, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm (County Operations Center Chambers - 5520 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123): Regional Partners Public Workshop for public agencies, business organizations, environmental groups, community groups and other interested parties to contribute to the critical issues and enablers associated with potential GHG reduction strategies/measures.
- Tuesday, September 27, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm (County Operations Center Chambers - 5520 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123): Communitywide Public Workshop, or open house forum, for the public-at-large to learn more about the County's climate action planning process, to engage in face-to-face communication with specialists, and to provide input on potential GHG reduction strategies/measures prior to the environmental review process.
