San Luis Obispo Climate Action Plan

San Luis Obispo, CA

2021 Innovation in Green Community Planning Award, Central California Section APA


Raimi + Associates, in coordination with the City of San Luis Obispo, led a team of subconsultants in creating the San Luis Obispo Climate Action Plan Technical Analysis. The analysis outlines an ambitious pathway to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035.

R+A helped to facilitate a high level of community engagement, including presentations to community organizations, one community workshop, and the development of a community engagement toolkit. The stakeholder outreach was designed to gather input, as well as activate and engage residents, businesses, and institutions with positive actions and tangible benefits.

As part of the project, R+A conducted a detailed assessment of potential greenhouse gas mitigation measures across the sectors of clean energy, buildings, transportation, waste, and sequestration focusing on areas under the City's direct control. R+A also developed a GHG Reductions Analysis tool to estimate the impact of strategies and the magnitudes of implementation needed to achieve carbon neutrality. The analysis is used to support the development and prioritization of strategies for the city.
