  • Rancho Cordova is writing a CAP, but we’re alarmed.

    Ranch Cordova is drafting a City climate action plan (CAP). CAPs allow future development to proceed without GHG-mitigation beyond that specified in the CAP, so can lead to environmental impacts, especially if the CAP’s measures are ineffective (learn more about CAPs). Draft CAPs are subject to State environmental review requirements – potential impacts must be […]

  • Thunderous applause: City Council adopts New Building Electrification Ordinance

      Yesterday the Sacramento City Council adopted the New Building Electrification Ordinance! The Mayor and  Councilmembers Valenzuela, Guerra, Harris, Schenirer, Vang, and Jennings voted to adopt the ordinance.

  • Sac Co CAP – the Latest Ploy

    At a recent CAP stakeholders meeting, Sac County staff advised us they propose to submit the CAP for adoption as an “EIR-Addendum,” meaning the CAP would circumvent normal CEQA review for technical and legal adequacy. EIR addenda are used for minor changes to projects which were previously analyzed under CEQA, when the changes don’t affect […]
