Township names five community volunteers to Climate Action Ad Hoc Board

Date: October 11, 2017

In June, the Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution committing the Township to immediately begin to develop a strategy to become a net zero greenhouse gas emitter no later than 2050.

The Township has named five community members to a newly created Climate Action Ad Hoc Board, an advisory group that will help staff implement this resolution.

The specific task assigned to them is defined as follows:

To develop a strategy that will enable the Township to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as feasible, but no later than 2050, and to ensure that such a strategy establishes goals which are transparent, fair, and economically feasible.

These community volunteers will help to affect climate change on a local level. The strategy they develop will be presented to the Board of Supervisors for review and approval.

We thank these five volunteers for helping to make the Township a better place to live.

Examples of other local government greenhouse gas emission reduction strategies include:

King County Strategic Climate Action Plan
Chicago Climate Action Plan
City of Alameda Local Action Plan for Climate Protection
