Community feedback is key to the Village’s efforts to develop a comprehensive climate plan that will guide Oak Park’s sustainability efforts for years to come.
Visit www.oak-park.us/climateplan to leave comments and share ideas related to environmental justice, healthy and sustainable food, open space and biodiversity, energy, housing, stormwater and flooding, transportation and more.
The site also includes a wide range of information about the science behind climate change and its potential impacts.
If you’ve already submitted feedback, consider organizing your own conversation about climate change with friends, family or colleagues using the DIY Meeting Kit available on the website.
All input collected will be incorporated into the Village’s Comprehensive Sustainability and Climate Action Resiliency Plan due later this year.
