Virtual Public Participation Meeting to Review the DRAFT Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP).

Dayton, OH – The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) will hold a virtual Public Participation Meeting to present a DRAFT of the Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP). MVRPC has developed the first regional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory, and compiled strategies for lowering emissions suggestions from member jurisdictions and national models. The purpose of this planning effort is to explore approaches the Region can take to contribute to national goals to reduce GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 and to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

With Inflation Reduction Act funding from US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), planning support from Sustainability Solutions Group and in partnership with communities and park districts from across the Miami Valley, MVRPC has been leading a regional effort to develop the Region’s first Climate Action Plan.

The meeting will take place via Zoom, a video conferencing platform, and will be held as follows: Thursday, February 1, 2024 – 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
