Sustainability Resource Fair, Climate Action Plan open house set for Sept. 24 in Del Mar

The city of Del Mar is hosting a Sustainability Resource Fair and Climate Action Plan open house from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 24 at the Powerhouse Community Center, 1658 Coast Blvd., Del Mar, CA, 92014.

For the past few years, the city’s Sustainability Advisory Board has been developing a multi-faceted Climate Action Plan and updating the city’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory. The Climate Action Plan will set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and 2035, identify strategies to meet the targets, formulate a plan for implementation, and discuss ways the city needs to adapt to the effects of climate change already occurring or anticipated to occur, such as sea level rise and water supply shortages.

The purpose of the Sept. 24 Sustainability Resource Fair and Climate Action Plan open house is to provide residents with an opportunity to share their thoughts on the main components and strategies included in the draft Climate Action Plan. Attendees will also be able to learn about resources to improve the environmental sustainability of their home or business from the following agencies: city of Del Mar, Waste Management, San Diego County Water Authority, San Diego Gas and Electric, Center for Sustainable Energy, the San Diego Foundation and others.

The Climate Action Plan will be presented to the City Council for consideration and recommended adoption later this year. For information, contact Management Services Director Kristen Crane at 858-755-9313, ext. 132.
