At the December 5th City Council meeting, staff is recommending approval of a contract with Raimi & Associates to update CARP and prepare for 2025-2030 plan implementation. Please see the meeting agenda and staff report (item 6-C). This item was not heard at the November 21st meeting.
Through adoption of its award-winning Climate Action and Resiliency Plan in 2019, Alameda has set an ambitious goal of reducing emissions by 50% below 2005 levels by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral as soon as possible. The CARP charts a course to achieve this goal through equitable improvements to transportation, buildings, energy use, and waste management. As a low-lying island city threatened by rising seas and increasing extreme heat and smoke days, we need to act boldly to keep Alameda safe for current and future generations. If we are successful, we will reduce Alameda's greenhouse gas emissions, increase quality of life on the island, and build a resilient, thriving city.
Realizing our vision will take all of us working together. Find ways you can take action by clicking on the “Take Action!” tab below. To track our progress, explore the CARP dashboard. The dashboard offers a deeper dive on key areas such as transportation, energy use and climate adaptation.
