    Good Afternoon All,

    Staff wanted to provide an update on the King Climate Action Plan and where it stands currently.

    Staff has been busy over the spring and summer developing the plan and moving through a draft of the plan with actions and priorities. As well as carrying out several climate change/ energy/ emission reduction projects. The following will be the plan's expectations moving into the fall of 2021.

    1. A Climate Change survey will be circulated on Speaking King for input.

    Survey to be released this month- this survey will be open for 3 weeks, and a post notifying of the survey going live will also be added to this page.

    2. Draft King Climate Action Plan (KCAP)- with targets, data, and actions to be brought to Council and the sustainability advisory committee for comment and feedback. The expected timeline is Fall- early Q4.

    3. Following council feedback and comment there will be a virtual public information session/centre (VPIC) held for additional public comments/feedback on the draft plan. Dependant on health regulations and restrictions, it is tentatively expected that this VPIC will be held virtually.

    4. A updated KCAP will be taken back to Council with council, committee and public feedback included in the second half of Q4 for approval. This council appearance is expected to include a presentation from staff on the plan.


    Staff looks forward to receiving feedback from the survey and draft plan and moving King towards a greener, cleaner, more resilient low-carbon future.

    Happy Holidays and New Year to everyone! We wanted to give an update on the progress of the plan. We thank everyone who participated in the Webinars for their feedback. In the event, you missed one or both of the webinars they are on the right panel where you can watch them back.

    The plan is currently under development, with upcoming stakeholder meetings to better understand how King can work with the community synergistically and ensure that the plan is set up for success.

    One last update is to watch this space in the coming weeks for a more in-depth survey relating to the Climate Action Plan but also for a joint survey between Hydro One and King Township to determine voluntary interest in renewable energy and energy demand.


    Happy New Year, lets get this year off to a great start

    Quick update with a link to sign up for both of our webinars talking about Kings Climate Change Action Plan.

    Both webinars will have minutes taken and/or recorded for public posting following the events.

    Webinar 1 will be covering the development of the plan to date, taking time to look at the predicted weather/ climatic trends over the next decade and on as well as more closely talking about the emissions inventory. After preliminary data we can provide some examples of actions and priorities that have been identified by staff, peers and research that are of interest to the township from both a mitigation and adaptation point of view for both near and long term consideration. Following this we will have time for a Q&A and discussion based on feedback from participants.

    Webinar 2 will be covering in a condensed form of webinar 1's introduction material, and opening up more public feedback to discuss the perceived risks and impacts of climate change from individuals within our communities perspective. This exercise will help staff to better understand the perceived risks/ impacts from outside the corporate lens. There will be time at the end to discuss recommended targets and what the community feels is appropriate, given that the changes that are needed to be taken on a community level, between King, partners, stakeholders and residents.
