The Fairfax County Community-wide Energy and Climate Action Plan (CECAP) development process is administered by the Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination. The plan, which will be the first of its kind for the county, will include a greenhouse gas inventory as well as targets for greenhouse gas reduction in the coming years.
The CECAP will also include actions and strategies to help mitigate climate change and to reduce the impact of climate-related events on county residents and businesses. At the conclusion of the development process, a final plan will be presented to the Board of Supervisors for adoption.
Community input and involvement is critically important to the success of the CECAP. The plan will be developed with the assistance of a task force comprised of leaders from the business community, local and regional nonprofits, and residents from each of the nine Fairfax County Supervisor districts. Each district will be represented by a focus group with participants from civic and environmental groups, as well as leaders from the school board, business associations, faith-based groups, and more.
In 2020, all county residents will have the opportunity to become involved at a series of public meetings. Information about engagement opportunities will be posted here as it becomes available.
