Environmental Action Planning

Environmental Action Plan

Environmental action requires the collective action of everyone globally, including individuals, governments, private businesses, and the non-profit community. The City of Fredericksburg recognizes the important role of local government in community climate action and is in the process of preparing the City of Fredericksburg's Environmental Action Plan (EAP), which will begin to address the challenges that climate change presents to our city. The role of government, while important, is small in comparison to the actions that everyone must take. The City of Fredericksburg's EAP plans to provide an evaluation of the community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, strategies, and actions to reduce emissions; an understanding of the role of equity and the implications of climate change on vulnerable communities; and an overview of the impacts of climate change and how it affects Fredericksburg's overall community resilience.
