In September 2017, the City of Hartford Planning & Zoning Commission formally approved Hartford’s first Climate Action Plan! Here’s a video about the effort:
A working group of that Commission, the Climate Stewardship Council, started meeting in early 2016 to draft a Climate Action Plan that embodies the shared values and goals of our residents and businesses as we work together to tackle climate change.
The Climate Action Plan identifies goals and strategies within 6 interconnected action areas: Energy, Food, Landscape, Transportation, Waste, and Water. Our hope is to make incremental but consistent progress in each of these areas, using the resources that are available to us and making decisions that are consistent with our 3 shared values; Public Health, Economic Development, and Social Equity.
