Climate-Friendly Areas - Draft Community Engagement Plan
Comprehensive planning staff have been working to implement the Climate Friendly and Equitable Communities (CFEC) administrative rules passed in July 2022 by Oregon’s Land Conservation and Development Commission in response to Governor Brown’s Executive Order 20-04. These rules include wide-ranging requirements for metropolitan areas and the City of Springfield is mandated to comply with the rules that affect community engagement, land use, and transportation. To reduce air pollution, one component of the rules requires Springfield to identify and designate Climate-Friendly Areas, dense urban mixed-use centers where people can meet most of their needs without relying on a car. At this meeting, staff is requesting input on the Draft Areas-at-a-Glance document to learn if this summary serves as a helpful tool to convey key project information. Staff also request input on and approval of the Draft Community Engagement Plan for the Climate-Friendly Areas project.
