County of San Diego – Status Summary

The County of San Diego is developing a new Climate Action Plan, after having its prior plan thrown out in court (thanks to the legal muscle of Sierra Club) for failing to fulfill its legal duty to adequately reduce greenhouse gas pollution with measurable and enforceable actions.

The County expects to release a draft of its new Climate Action Plan by early 2017 and bring the final plan before the County Board of Supervisors for a vote in summer or fall of 2017. They are also developing a clean energy program.

Through end of 2016, the County says it will be conducting public outreach according to their outreach plan, completing a greenhouse gas inventory, and holding a public scoping meeting as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to facilitate the environmental review process.

Climate Action Campaign is keeping a close eye on this process to ensure the County gets back on track.  The County posts information and resources on its climate plan here.
