On Saturday, September 23, 2017, Mayor Stephen Hagerty kicked off the City's next Climate Action and Resilience Planning process at an event at the Evanston Ecology Center. The Mayor has appointed 16 members of the community to the Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP) Working Group. Their task is to create a plan for the City. The group, made up of 16 voting members and a student representative from Evanston Township High School, will have until October 2018 to complete their plan and present it to Evanston's City Council.

Details about CARP can be found on this page including: a member list, meeting schedule, minutes, agendas and packets, as well as contact information for the City staff liaison for the group. If you are looking for additional information related to the climate and sustainability work of the City, please visit the Sustainability webpage.

CARP would also like to invite community members with an interest and expertise related to climate action and resilience to further participate in the planning process as a Technical Adviser. Technical Advisers are individuals or organizations connected to the Evanston community that feel specifically well positioned to provide insight and feedback on CARP's work. More information about participating as a Technical Adviser can be found by visiting the Technical Adviser Form.
