Tempe to host Climate Action Plan Transportation Forum

Tempe to host Climate Action Plan Transportation Forum

What does the future of transportation in Tempe look like? How can we invest in creating a low-carbon transportation system? How can residents get involved?

Join Tempe, in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), at a Climate Action Plan Transportation Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Tempe Transportation Center, 200 E. Fifth St. Discuss the future of autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles and the creation of a low-carbon transportation system with the goal of achieving a 20-minute city. Help us set goals and create strategies that will build a sustainable future.

Tempe is working with residents, businesses, and stakeholders on a Climate Action Plan, which will be considered by the Council in mid-2019. The plan will describe a shared roadmap for how the city would like to move forward by initially focusing on energy, emissions, transportation, and extreme heat. An engaged community is a critical element in addressing climate change. Together, the team will be looking to the community for ideas and recommendations to ensure a plan is developed that is achievable and reflective of our city’s culture and values.

Climate Action Plans help cities decide how to make investments and take actions to create lasting, positive environmental change. The plan will include specific strategies, goals, actions and supporting measures.

Tempe will focus climate action efforts on lowering carbon emissions in transportation and energy and adapting to extreme heat. Stay tuned for more information about public forums and other input opportunities.
