The City of Palo Alto launched an update to the Sustainability and Climate Action Plan (S/CAP) in 2020 to help meet our City's sustainability goals, including our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The S/CAP Ad Hoc Committee was formed by City Council on April 19, 2021 to guide the development, implementation, communication, and future community engagement of the S/CAP. To watch recordings of previous S/CAP topic webinars and S/CAP Ad Hoc Meetings visit our S/CAP Community Engagement page.

The S/CAP Ad Hoc Committee is not subject to the requirements of the Brown Act. There will not be an agenda packet and minutes will not be taken. However, information about future meetings, including Open Town Hall Surveys, will be posted on our S/CAP Community Engagement page.
