Workshop about Truckee’s greenhouse, climate plans set for May 18

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Sierra Business Council and the town of Truckee invite residents to join us for a community workshop on the town’s draft Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and an update on the status of the town’s Climate Planning Process.

The town, with the assistance of SBC’s Climate Planning team, has taken the crucial first step in the community’s climate planning process by developing a baseline greenhouse gas emissions inventory, the draft of which can be access on the town’s website, or at this direct link:

The town and SBC will host a community workshop on Wednesday, May 18, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Town Council Chambers, 10183 Truckee Airport Road.

The town contracted with SBC to develop baseline community-wide and municipal-operations greenhouse gas emissions inventories. SBC’s Climate Planning team has over 20 years of combined experience helping local governments and special districts prepare greenhouse gas emissions inventories and develop reduction strategies.

The town plans to use the baseline inventories to develop and evaluate potential strategies to reduce community and municipal emissions while making Truckee more sustainable, vibrant and resilient to future climate change impacts.

The measures also have the potential to help boost the local economy, improve local air quality and reduce public health related costs.

The goal of the workshop is to provide background information on the greenhouse gas emissions inventory, review the status of state and federal climate goals and implementation programs, discuss goals and vision of comparable jurisdictions, and collect as much public feedback as possible.
