Kane County Climate Action Plan

Kane County is hosting a series of public input sessions in February​ to seek feedback on a draft of its first Climate Action Implementation Plan (CAIP).

Upcoming dates/locations are:

  • Wednesday, February 21, 5:30-7:00pm at Aurora Public Library, Santori Branch, Room 224, 101 S River St, Aurora, IL .
  • Saturday, February 24, 11:00am-2:00pm at Hawthorne Hill Nature Center, 28 Brookside Dr., Elgin.​

The CAIP establishes goals and detailed actions across eight categories: transportation, building, waste management, water, local food, greenspace, health and the economy. The plan aims to increase resilience to climate change, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (with a target of 25% below 2019 levels by 2030), and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.​

If you can't attend one of the sessions, you can also join us for an online overview hosted by Mavis Bates and Sarra Hinshaw:
