The Environmental Commission on Thursday 10 September 2014 approved its report with recommendations for the update of the City’s Climate Action Plan. Now that it’s final, that report will be considered by the City Council. Erik Steenblock, senior environmental manager and Commission coordinator, said that it may be on the Council’s Agenda as soon as October or November.

If the Council approves the report, then EPIC will be given the task of updating the CAP. Since EPIC has a grant from SDG&E, the update will be done at no cost to the city.

The CAP update will take at least six months to do, and maybe longer. I (Jim) hope to work with EPIC (most likely, Dr. Silva-Send) in crafting the report.
