On June 23, 2020, Flagstaff City Council declared a climate emergency. The declaration obliges Flagstaff to achieve community-wide CO2 neutrality by 2030, to respond to climate emergencies and to improve the quality of life for all residents.

With input from the Flagstaff community and technical experts, the City of Flagstaff developed a draft plan that sets out a framework for action for the next nine years. This plan lists seven target areas that the city will take to achieve carbon neutrality:

  • Community resilience
  • Just systems
  • Decreased dependence on vehicles
  • Electromobility
  • Clean electricity
  • Building fuel switching
  • Reduced energy requirements for buildings
  • Sustainable consumption and waste management
  • Carbon dioxide removal

In response to the increased public interest, city officials will submit the draft plan to the city council for review and guidance on May 25, 2021. Members of the Flagstaff community can provide direct feedback to the city council via email, written public comments, or through comments at the virtual meeting.
