The City of Burlington has declared a Climate Emergency. We are developing a Climate Action Plan and making decisions with the climate as a major factor.

The initial engagement process for the Climate Action Plan is complete. It included:

  • 5 pop-ups at community events over the summer,
  • 2 public workshops in September and
  • an online survey.

The information is now being assessed to help form the action plan. Key program areas are being developed to help the community transition away from the use of fossil fuels, particularly for buildings and transportation.

Information on key actions and implementation will be available during a

Public Open House

The Sustainable Development Committee is also hosting a public session on Climate Action in Burlington:
