Council Meeting This Monday
The Council will meet this Monday evening, December 6. The Council meeting will be conducted entirely remotely with no in-person meeting attendance. The Agenda for the meeting, including many supporting details, is posted via the Agenda Center on the Town's website (http://www.upmd.org/agendacenter). I urge you to review the full Agenda of the meeting for items of interest to you.
Presentation: Prince George’s County Climate Action Plan.
Prince George’s County Department of Environment Andrea Crooms and staff will present and discuss the County Climate Action Plan. The Climate Action Plan (CAP) aims to help the County reach its carbon emissions goal of 50% reduction by 2030 (compared with 2005 levels). The goal aligns with the State's projection for 50% emission reduction by 2030 through the implementation of the Maryland 2030 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government's goals for the region.
