The City of Santa Clarita is hosting two open house workshops for the community regarding the City’s Climate Action Plan, featuring several different stations where participants can gather more information and ask questions.
The Climate Action Plan focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by increasing the use of renewable energy sources, implementing green building policies, diverting waste from landfills, and changing land use and transportation patterns to reduce dependence on automobiles.
“The City of Santa Clarita is dedicated to laying the foundation for a sustainable community,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “The City’s goal is to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade. Community feedback about the City’s Climate Action Plan is a vital part of our process.”

Undertaken as part of the City’s proposed general plan, One Valley One Vision, the Climate Action Plan will record community-wide greenhouse gas emissions and develop strategies to reduce them into the future in accordance with California Assembly Bill 32. This bill requires California to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 emission levels by the year 2020.
The first open house is scheduled for Monday, June 13, 2011, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Canyon Rooms at the City of Santa Clarita’s Activities Center, located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.
