The Fairfax County Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination announces two climate action public meetings taking place the week of February 22, 2021. These public meetings will provide residents and other county stakeholders an opportunity to hear from experts and to offer feedback on the development of the county’s first-ever Community-wide Energy and Climate Action Plan (CECAP).
The two public meetings will be held virtually using the WebEx platform due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first public meeting will be devoted to energy issues, and the second will focus on transportation, development, and waste-related issues. This division of the climate planning discussion draws attention to the two greatest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Fairfax County: energy use in buildings, and transportation.
The public meetings will be complemented by three short online surveys, set to launch on Monday, February 22. More information on the surveys will be posted on the CECAP public engagement page as it becomes available.
