Last year, over 500 Bend residents signed a petition urging the Bend City Council to take local action on climate. Your support made a difference and now we need your help again!
On September 7, 2016 the Bend City Council adopted a resolution (3044) that lays out a clear and detailed pathway for Bend to move forward towards reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. The adopted resolution—if implemented—will move Bend in the right direction when it comes to climate action. And it will help the City reduce costs, save money and design a much more livable community.
With the President's withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, local action on climate is more important than ever. Show your support for local climate action now!
I call on the members of the Bend City Council to implement Bend's Climate Action Resolution and allocate resources to fulfill its commitments and goals.
