The City of Bend’s Community Climate Action Plan is the result of months of work and cooperation between many different local stakeholders: city government, businesses, environmental activists, youth, experts and individuals came together on the Climate Action Steering Committee to make recommendations on the best strategies to move Bend forward into a clean, sustainable economy. This fall, the city council will be choosing which of these recommendations and strategies to implement – determining what this plan will look like as actual policy. Sign the petition to ask the city to pass a strong plan.
