KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is
pleased to announce that the City of Kingston’s Climate Action Plan 2030 draft

The City of Kingston is creating a Climate
Action Plan 2030 (CAP), which will provide a blueprint to build sustainable,
resilient, and independent energy, food, economic, and social systems over the
next 10 years. With input from the community, the CAP will develop a vision for
achieving sharp reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The draft
document can be found at https://engagekingston.com/climate-action-plan.
Community members will now have an
opportunity to provide feedback on the draft plan, including at two public

“As our world leaders work globally on
climate issues, I implore Kingston residents to act locally,” said Mayor Noble.
“This plan will provide a guide for our community to do our part, and I
encourage all residents to participate in this collective effort.”
The public comment period will be open
until November 22, 2021. Comments will be incorporated into the final plan
submitted to the Common Council for consideration and adoption in early 2022.
