Nov 8, 2016

The City of Rochester's draft Climate Action Plan is now available for public comment. We dive into the plan and what it covers, including energy use and supply, transportation, waste and materials management, clean water, and land use.

How does it all weave together? We put the draft plan under the microscope. Our guests:

  • Anne Spaulding, energy and environmental sustainability manager for the City of Rochester
  • Susan Hopkins, project planner for Bergmann Associates and member of the consultant group that drafted the CAP
  • Scott Oliver, deputy for energy programs at Pathstone
  • Rachel Walsh, EcoDistrict coordinator for Greentopia
  • Abby McHugh-Grifa, member of Rochester People’s Climate Coalition and co-leader of Citizens' Climate Lobby of Rochester
