Commissions & Committees

***Please Note***
The City Administrator has suspended all non-essential regular City Committee/Commission meetings beginning March 12, 2020, as a precautionary and preventive measure for COVID-19. Non-essential meetings are defined as anything not having a state or federal timeline for funding. As a result, most Commissions will not be meeting until further notice. The goal is to keep City employees healthy so that they can continue providing essential functions to our citizens.
Staff is currently working on the technical details of facilitating electronic meetings for the City Council and Planning Commission and that is the priority.   Once that is worked out staff will turn efforts to helping facilitate regular Commission and Committee meetings as needed.

The Climate Policy Commission shall provide climate plan implementation process oversight and recommend updates to the CEAP in pursuit of meeting the climate recovery goals, objectives, and targets set forth in AMC Chapter 9.40.

The Climate Policy Commission shall reflect and represent a wide range of community interests and perspectives.  Such interests shall include, but not be limited to, environmental, energy efficiency, renewable energy, academic, business, low income, health, communities of color, and elderly interests.
Powers and Duties 
A.  Develop recommendations for the City of Ashland’s Climate and Energy Action Plan (CEAP) and any updates to the CEAP.
B.  Recommend modifications to benchmarks, targets, or actions contained in the climate plan as needed to incorporate the best available science and practices to achieve the City of Ashland’s climate-related goals and targets.
C.  Manage a process for considering amendments and updates to the CEAP.
D.  Monitor and make recommendations on the implementation of the CEAP for the community and for City operations
E.  Periodically review progress toward achievement of the CEAP’s Greenhouse Gases (GHG) and fossil fuels reduction targets.
F.  Recommend changes in City ordinances, administrative rules, and processes that facilitate or incentivize residents and businesses to reduce GHG emissions.

H.  Work to ensure that the CEAP is socially equitable for all community members including low-income, young people, persons of color, the elderly, and those living with disabilities.
