CONTACT INFORMATION: Laura Janway, Environmental Sustainability Coordinator, ljanway@townofcarrboro.org, (919) 918-7342; Patricia McGuire, Planning Director, pmcguire@townofcarrboro.org, (919) 918-7327              

 

INFORMATION: The purpose of this item is to update the Town Council on progress developing a charge for a climate advisory board based on direction from the June 16, 2020 Town Council Meeting. Staff have discussed the role of a climate advisory board and have developed a plan and yearly meeting schedule for an action-oriented Climate Action Commission (CAC). Staff have also worked with the Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) to develop a work plan for the CAC. 

Next Steps: The Town Council will review and discuss this information, including the proposal for a new climate advisory board. Creation of this board would involve a Town Code amendment. We expect that the Town Council could receive a Town Code amendment for consideration in late October or early November, anticipating the EAB’s completion of the work plan at their October 1, 2020 meeting. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: There is no fiscal or staff impact related to this update.
