Climate Action Plan

Treea

The Climate Action Plan, or CAP, is a strategic planning document that identifies sources of GHG emissions from sources within Elk Grove and reduces emissions through energy use, transportation, land use, water use, and solid waste strategies (referred to as “measures” in the CAP).  The City’s primary motivation for preparing the CAP is to enable new development projects consistent with the CAP and General Plan to tier from the CAP’s environmental review process and minimize subsequent project-level analysis.  To provide this benefit to new development, implementation of the CAP on a project-by-project basis should achieve reductions in greenhouse gas emissions consistent with State protocols.

On February 27, 2019, the City Council adopted an updated Climate Action Plan for the City, as part of the General Plan Update.  The 2019 CAP can be found at this link.
