Lane County Climate Action Plan Updates
Lane County’s “Climate Action Plan Citizen Advisory Committee” has met twice. While meetings thus far are very rules/process focused, we have observed some hopeful signs. The diverse committee includes many perspectives. The initial session showed volunteers with diverse backgrounds and perspectives including indigenous, science, youth, environmental/climate, forest protection, timber industry and social justice organizations.
At this moment the county appears to appreciate the committee’s depth of experience. The question is, will the county ignore their recommendations, like the City of Eugene did with their “advisory” bodies? That’s up to us! To keep the pressure on, don’t miss the December meeting on zoom. Tune in for yourself. You can listen or make comments.
