Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Jessamine, Scott and Woodford Counties, along with the municipal governments within those counties, are collaborating on a regional climate action plan. The six-county collaborative is seeking public input on the priority projects proposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in the region.
To collect input, a hybrid meeting will take place on Thursday, Feb. 15, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., Fayette County will serve as the primary meeting host, with the event taking place at the Senior Center, 195 Life Lane. Each participating community will have a public meeting hub, with an onsite facilitator. Individuals are also welcome to log into the meeting directly via Zoom.
On Feb. 16, a survey will be made available online for those who were unable to attend or who have additional thoughts to share. The survey will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, February 19.
To access the public meeting via Zoom, find the meeting location for other communities or (starting Feb. 16) take the public input survey on our Sustainability page.
This regional effort is funded by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Input from the public meeting and survey will inform what goes into the regional implementation grant application, which would be used to fund the GHG reduction projects.
Proposed projects focus on solar energy, trees, and transportation. These proposals build on existing efforts that have a proven track record.
