Open House: Climate Action Plan

County Wide
Lane Auditorium (COB)
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Albemarle County is holding an Open House to kick off Phase 1 of the County’s Climate Action Planning process. The community is invited to learn more about the overall climate action planning process, setting greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, and developing strategies for each emission sector to meet the target. County staff and regional partners will be on hand to provide information, answer questions, and share ideas. 

To stay informed on County Climate Action, visit the website, sign up for A-mail at, or email 

The community is also encouraged to go to to learn about the City of Charlottesville, the University of Virginia, and Albemarle County’s participation opportunities, previous regional climate action efforts, and more information about sustainability and climate action. 



The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on September 6, 2017 reaffirming the County’s commitment to addressing climate change. The Board resolved to continue to stand with cities, counties, and other public and private sector partners throughout the world to advance action in accordance with local and international goals. 


The current Climate Action Plan process will address a directive in the Board’s FY20-22 Strategic Plan to “develop/implement phase one of the Climate Action Plan to include high-level goals and strategies focused around climate protection and resiliency to locally address climate change.” The resolution further committed to coordinate with community partners and local stakeholders to develop a Climate Action Plan – including a specific target for GHG reduction.
