An effective greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan requires broad support and participation. To help inform this process The Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan utilized the direction of a Steering Committee, consisting of locally elected officials, and an Advisory Workgroup, consisting of subject matter experts. Meetings were open to the public. A summary of each meeting and distributed documents are cataloged on the plan’s Meeting Materials page. Staff used a Public Engagement Strategy, and a Public Engagement Toolkit to communicate about the climate mitigation plan.
