Climate Change Action Plan

This year, the City of Spruce Grove (the City) is updating its Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP). The ESAP expires in 2021, after being in place for 10 years. To replace the ESAP, the City will spend this year preparing a Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP).

To create the CCAP, the City will engage with citizens, conduct research and recommend a set of actions that the City can take to address climate change in an environmentally and financially responsible way. Some of these actions will be to prepare for the effects of future changes to local weather. Other actions will help the City and residents do their part to reduce their contributions to global climate change.

The Climate Change Action Plan will help answer these two main questions:

  1. How can the City help prepare the community for the anticipated effects of climate change?
  2. How can the City reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and help the community do the same?

Over the coming weeks and months there will be many opportunities for you to share your hopes, fears, knowledge and experiences with us. This plan is for you, so we want it to reflect you!

    by cvangaal,

    After a year of work, we are almost ready to present a proposed Climate Change Action Plan to the City of Spruce Grove City Council. Before we do that, we want to know – what do you think of this proposed plan?

    In this one-hour online webinar and discussion, you will hear a summary of the recommendations that will be made to City Council, and have a chance to tell us what you think of what you hear.

    At the beginning of the event, you will learn about the recommendations in this proposal. These recommendations have been designed to, over the next 12 years, 1) help Spruce Grove to protect itself to long term expected changes to local weather patterns, and 2) help the city to reduce our overall energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

    After this presentation, you will have an opportunity to let us know what you think about these ideas in small groups. A summary of the ideas from you and other people who attend will be included as part of the upcoming presentation to City Council. This is an opportunity for your ideas to be heard by City Council as they decide on the final design of this plan.

    There are three times that you can hear about this plan:

    1. Noon-1 pm on Tuesday January 18, 2022
    2. 7-8 pm on Tuesday January 18, 2022
    3. Noon-1 pm on Wednesday January 19, 2022


    Participants must register for a webinar(External link) to receive a Zoom link to attend the event.

    We look forward to hearing what you think!
