Hennepin County has released a draft of our first Climate Action Plan (PDF). The county is gathering feedback on the plan through online meetings and a comment form through Wednesday, March 3.
Online community meetings
The county is holding two online meetings where county staff will present core goals and strategies. Anyone interested in the county’s response to climate change is encouraged to attend.
Using online facilitation tools, participants will complete polls about the goals and strategies, offer comments, and ask written questions that will be answered through a moderated process. Meetings will be held:
- Monday, February 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Monday, March 1 from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Sign up to attend a meeting now by completing the RSVP form.
Both sessions will have the same agenda, so you only need to attend one session. Information about how to access the meeting will be emailed a few days prior to the event.
Individuals who wish to offer feedback on the plan but do not want to attend an online meeting may share their comments through an online feedback form.
County staff will summarize the feedback and made final edits to the plan in March. The board would take up formal adoption of the plan, which will include a final public comment process, in April.
