Now Available Solano County Draft Climate Action Plan

Solano County Draft Climate Action Plan

Notice is hereby given that Solano County has prepared a Draft Climate Action Plan (CAP) and an Initial Study of Environmental Impact, now available for public review. The public review period is 45 days, and will close on February 15, 2011.

The Draft CAP provides policies and identifies actions intended to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the County and to assist in the fight against climate change. The goal of the Draft CAP is to reduce unincorporated Solano County's communitywide greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent below 2005 ("baseline") emission levels by the year 2020. The Draft CAP provides general information about climate change and how GHG emissions within the unincorporated county contribute to it, as well as an analysis of the potential effects of climate change on the county. In addition, the Draft CAP describes baseline GHG emissions, and projects GHG emissions that could be expected if the Draft CAP is not implemented.

A public hearing for consideration of the Draft CAP has not been scheduled yet. A separate notice for the public hearing will be published.

The public is invited to submit written comments on the Draft CAP. Your comments must be received by the County prior to the close of the 45 day review period, which is 5:00 p.m. on February 15, 2011. Please submit written comments to: Matt Walsh, Solano County Department of Resource Management, 675 Texas Street, Suite 5500, Fairfield, CA 94533 (707) 784-6765.

Copies of the Draft CAP can be reviewed at the Department of Resource Management at the above address beginning on December 15, 2010. Electronic copies of the Draft CAP can be provided on CD for a cost of $5.00. The Draft CAP is also available online at:
