SLOCOOL.org is the City of San Luis Obispo's community portal for climate action planning.
The City was notified on April 20, 2013 that it will be receiving an award for its Climate Action Plan from the Central Coast Chapter of the American Planning Association! This success represents a tremendous amount of team work and collaboration between the Planning Department, Utilities, Public Works and Cal Poly Students.
What is a Climate Action Plan (CAP)? The CAP establishes strategies for reducing community-wide greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32). The CAP was adopted by resolution by the City Council of San Luis Obispo on July 17, 2012. View the plan by downloading the following PDF: SLO CLIMATE ACTION PLAN
Thank you to all who gave input during the entire process of adopting the SLO Climate Action Plan. If you have any questions about the plan please contact James David, Associate Planner, at (805) 781-7576 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of San Luis Obispo is committed to addressing climate change through development of the CAP (made possible by a grant from Federal Stimulus Funds); implementation of new Title 24 Energy Efficient Standards and CALGreen Building Standards; upgrades to City facilities such as the Water Reclamation Facility, and participation with the Local Government Commission to develop strategies to adapt to climate change in the future.
