August 4, 2015 (San Diego) – The San Diego City Planning Department has published a 300 page  public notice  of a Draft Environmental Impact report on the city’s ambitious climate action plan, which expands on Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s   climate action plan  released last year. The public has 60 days to comment.

The ambitious plan aspires to cut San Diego’s greenhouse gas emissions in half and convert all energy used by the city to renewable sources by 2035. The city also aims to have half its urban residents walking, biking, or taking public transportation to work. The plan lists community choice aggregation as an option for Council to consider, but does not mandate it.

Public comments can be mailed to Rebecca Malone, associate planner, City of San Diego Planning Department, 1222 First Avenue, MS 501, San Diego, CA 92101 or emailed to DSDEAS@sandiego.gov referencing the Project Name and Number in the subject line.
