Climate Action Framework

The City of Sebastopol is nearing the end of a community-centered process to create a Climate Action Framework. The goal of the Framework is to help Sebastopol reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of climate change, such as increased drought risk and more frequent wildfires. To do so, the City needs the input and involvement of all Sebastopol community members. Read on for more information about how to get involved.
