CPRG Public Workshops Completed, What's Next?

The Subregional Public Workshops for the CMRPC's Climate Pollution Reduction Grant have come to completion. Since November, CMRPC has been hosting subregional public workshops to discuss climate pollution reduction strategies. Attendees were provided a chance to discuss strategies to reduce climate pollution in each sector: transportation, electricity, industry, commercial and residential buildings, waste management, and agriculture/natural and working lands. Attendees were also asked to take part in voting activities, which focused on ranking the goals to reduce climate pollution in each sector that staff developed. An option was given to add other goals. The purpose of these workshops was to help CMRPC and the project team develop the next step of the planning process, the Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP). The PCAP aims to develop short-term, high-priority, and implementation-ready measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and an analysis of GHG emission reductions that would be achieved through implementation. The PCAP must include a GHG inventory, quantified GHG reduction measures, low-income and disadvantaged communities (LIDAC) benefits analysis, and a review of authority to implement. The PCAP is due on March 1st, 2024.

As a reminder, the CPRG is a 4-year planning document. Following the completion of the PCAP, the project team will begin the process of public outreach to complete the Comprehensive Climate Action Plan (due Summer 2025) and finally the Status Report (due Summer 2027).
