Transportation and Land Use Community Workshop

February 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
transportation and land use community workshop

Hosted by the City of Austin Office of Sustainability –

Join the City’s Office of Sustainability to give your input on how to reduce the community carbon footprint of transportation and land use in Austin!

The Office of Sustainability is in the process of updating Austin’s Community Climate Plan. As part of that process, we’re talking with community members to understand their goals, barriers, hopes, and dreams when it comes to reducing our community carbon footprint.

One the many potential solutions to the climate crisis is helping reduce the carbon impact of our transportation system and land use patterns. In this workshop, we are seeking input to understand what you think about transportation and land use planning in Austin. We want to hear your ideas!

At this workshop, you will:

  • Provide input and feedback to City staff about the challenges and barriers to reaching Austin’s climate goals.
  • Discuss the positives and negatives of accelerating the transition to zero-emission of transportation system and land use patterns.
  • Help identify strategies to reduce carbon emissions.

Refreshments and childcare:

Food and drinks will be provided, and supervised child activities will be available for kids age 3 and up.

More details:

This is one of five different workshops that coincide with the five advisory groups working on the Climate Plan Update: Transportation Electrification, Transportation and Land Use (this workshop), Sustainable Buildings, Consumption of Goods, and Natural Systems.

The overall goal of the Climate Plan is to identify tangible and quantifiable actions that local government, big business, and community members can undertake in the next 5-10 years that will help reach our community’s goal of reducing at least as many global warming emissions as we create by 2050.
