KINGSTON – As part of the City of Kingston’s Climate Action Plan 2030 development process, the results of a public survey are now available. The Climate Action Plan 2030 will determine the next 10 years of the city’s climate goals.

The survey ranked different priorities, such as clean transportation, access to energy-efficient home improvements, local food resources, land and water use, among others. 

City officials said with nearly 300 survey respondents, the results will actively help the Climate Action Plan development process.

Kingston-based nonprofit Citizens for Local Power, which has been assisting the city to engage community feedback, will hold a virtual town hall on Tuesday, April 20 at 5:30 p.m. to present the responses, and provide a forum for discussion and commentary. 

“The results of the survey show the commitment of Kingston residents to creating a cleaner, greener Kingston that is healthier for all,” said Mayor Steven Noble. “This town hall is a critical part of our Earth Week celebration and the more people who contribute to the discussion ensure that the final Climate Action Plan 2030 will be equitable and truly representative of the diversity of our city.”

The Climate Action Plan 2030 is made possible by support from the Novo Foundation.
