Public Input Survey for Yolo County CAAP in Three Languages
The Yolo County Sustainability Program is seeking public input on the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) update.
In 2020, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors set the goal of meeting a carbon-negative footprint—removing more carbon from the atmosphere than the county produces—by 2030 with a focus on equity and justice. The Climate Action and Adaptation Plan will be a comprehensive roadmap for what Yolo County will do to meet its greenhouse gas reduction goal and help the community be more resilient to the impacts of climate change. When completed, Yolo County’s CAAP will be the most ambitious in the country, positioning Yolo County as a national leader in community-driven climate action and adaptation planning.
Filling out the CAAP survey will help county officials design future programs, policies, and other recommendations for how the county can lower emissions, protect our natural resources, and make sure that Yolo County is a thriving, sustainable community for generations to come.
Community members are encouraged to provide input by September 22, 2023. The survey should take approximately ten minutes to complete, and all Yolo County community members who participate in the survey will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for gift cards and other prizes. The survey is available in English, Spanish, and Russian:

- For the survey in Spanish, please visit: www.YoloCounty.org/CAAPES

The results of this survey will inform a series of community roundtables to take place this fall. Meeting dates and times will be shared this September.
