Background

The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on September 6, 2017 reaffirming the County’s commitment to addressing climate change. The Board resolved to continue to stand with cities, counties, and other public and private sector partners throughout the world to advance action in accordance with local and international goals.

The current Climate Action Plan process will address a directive in the Board’s FY20-22 Strategic Plan to “develop/implement phase one of the Climate Action Plan to include high-level goals and strategies focused around climate protection and resiliency to locally address climate change.” The resolution further committed to coordinate with community partners and local stakeholders to develop a Climate Action Plan – including a specific target for GHG reduction.
