South San Francisco Climate Action Plan

South San Francisco, CA

Description

Developed in concert with South San Francisco’s General Plan Update, Raimi + Associates prepared a Climate Action Plan to help the City to achieve the community’s vision for the future of South San Francisco. This CAP is a guide for the community’s response to challenges posed by climate change and is built on the City’s ongoing efforts to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The SSF CAP lays out strategies and actions to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045 by increasing waste diversion, reducing energy and water use, and increasing resiliency across multiple sectors. The CAP forecast of future community emissions is based on the General Plan Update build-out projections and the plan includes policies and programs that are reflected in the General Plan’s Climate Protection Element.
