 Climate Action Planning To be Discussed at Atascadero Design Review Committee

On Thursday, August 16 at 3:30 pm, the City of Atascadero’s Design Review Committee will be holding its first steering committee meeting to discuss the Countywide Climate Action Plan, also known as the Central Coast Greenhouse Gas Planning project. The purpose of the Countywide Climate Action Plan is to assist cities in San Luis Obispo County in developing strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the requirements of State’s “AB-32” requirements.

In March 2012, the Atascadero City Council agreed to participate with the San Luis Obispo Air Pollution Control District in a countywide grant to prepare a Climate Action Plan “toolbox.”  This toolbox of possible greenhouse gas reduction measures will be prepared by a consultant, who would quantify the reduction potential and fiscal impact of each potential measure.  Each of the six participating San Luis Obispo County cites would be able to choose measures from the toolbox to complete their own individual Climate Action Plans. 

The Atascadero City Council has appointed the City’s Design Review Committee to act as a steering committee during the Climate Action Planning process.  This existing review committee is made up of two Planning Commissioners, two City Council members and one at-large member.  The Committee’s meetings are always open to the public. 

Next week the Climate Action Plan consultant will be making a presentation to the Atascadero steering committee in order to layout the project objectives, outline the process to expect as we move forward and answer any questions that the Committee or the public may have.  The Committee will provide the consultant and City staff direction on the preparation of the toolbox and Atascadero’s individual Climate Action Plan.    

Additional information about the Central Coast Greenhouse Gas Planning project can be found at www.CentralCoastGHGPlanning.com.  Any information specific to the Atascadero oversight committee meetings will be posted on the City’s Design Review Committee website the week of the meeting.  The Atascadero Climate Action Plan oversight committee will meet on Thursday, August 16, 2012 at City Hall, Council Chambers, 6907 El Camino Real, Atascadero, at 3:30 P.M.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the City of Atascadero Community Development Department at 470-3448.
