The City Council is taking a vote Thursday to tell Mayor Kevin Faulconer it really, really wants him to get cracking on passing the Climate Action Plan.
The plan is basically a bundle of policies meant to get the city to cut 49 percent of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. It was aggressively pushed by Council President Todd Gloria when he served as interim mayor, and the Council is holding a vote to reiterate that it likes the plan and wants to see it approved. Soon.
Faulconer’s staff has responded by matter-of-factly saying: Yeah, relax, we’re working on it.
“(The mayor) has taken multiple steps to make sure it reaches a public hearing in spring of 2015, which is the same timeframe that was expected under the prior, interim administration,” said Mike Hansen, Faulconer’s head staffer on land use and environmental policy, at a July 23 committee hearing.
