Climate Action Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Mercer Island is writing its first ever Climate Action Plan (CAP) to guide the government, business, and resident actions needed to reduce the community’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and protect our environment.

Widespread citizen participation will be critical to ensure that planning is a success and that the City hears what's most important to the community. This page will be used for the public engagement components of the process, such as gathering feedback via public comment, online surveys, Q&A, and it also provides easy access to supporting documents and presentations.

Other outreach tools such as workshops, pop-up events, and public meetings will also be used throughout the 16-month CAP process. The CAP is expected to be adopted by the City Council in the first Quarter of 2023.

    At this online community meeting on Dec 8, 2021, about 60 attendees heard a short update on the proposed plan timeline and an overview of recent actions and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions status. Staff then gathered feedback from attendees on their climate priorities and personal vision for the Plan. You can view the presentation or read the Summary Notes in the Document Library. The video recording of this meeting is available on our public meetings YouTube page.
