climate change imageThe newly established Citizen Climate Advisory Committee (CCAC) will have its inaugural meeting on Thursday, September 3, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. The meeting is open to the public and will be conducted via Zoom. The agenda includes establishing a regular meeting schedule, electing committee officers, and beginning the development of the committee work plan. 


The CCAC provides an opportunity for citizen involvement in climate change issues and concerns affecting Alachua County, the City of Gainesville, and the surrounding municipalities. The committee will advise the Joint Water and Climate Policy Board on bold and innovative climate adaptation and mitigation strategies, policies, and target goals. The committee will also engage with relevant stakeholders, agencies, non-profits, and the community to ensure that neighborhoods and communities that are most impacted or disadvantaged by climate change are taken into account in the development of policy recommendations and action strategies. The committee will also assist the County, Gainesville, and other municipalities within Alachua County in the promotion of greater community awareness of climate-related issues and involvement in government climate resiliency initiatives.
