HOW OC CITIES CAN STOP THE CLIMATE CRISIS
Climate change is a critical issue that requires urgent action by OC governments.
OC leaders can use these policies to protect our communities.
CLIMATE ACTION PLANS
Create and implement a Climate Action Plan that is sufficiently-funded, equitable, and legally-binding
BIKEABLE, WALKABLE NEIGHBORHOODS
Prioritize development of bikeable, walkable neighborhoods with housing near jobs, shopping and public transit
Create a public transportation network of connected buses, trolleys, and commuter rail so people have more sustainable and efficient transit choices
COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY
Establish or join a well-run community choice energy program to reach 100% renewable energy
EQUITY + JUSTICE
Prioritize and engage historically marginalized and disproportionately impacted communities in climate solutions
Create an urban forestry program that plants native, drought-resistant trees to reduce climate impacts and urban heat island effects
VEHICLE FLEET ELECTRIFICATION
All city vehicles (police, fire, etc.) should be all-electric
