Item No. 2 - Green House Gas Poll. Reduc. Roadmap
The City Council requested an overview of the Green House Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap established at the state level. This memo summarizes how the Roadmap was developed, the goals for Green House Gas (GHG) reduction between now and 2050, and the measures currently in place to achieve those reductions. The Transportation sector was identified as the largest source of pollution. Therefore, the memo focuses on transportation-related initiatives led by both the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). There are no specific requirements for local agencies in the GHG Rule adopted by CDOT nor the Plan adopted by DRCOG. Instead, possible measures that the city could implement are voluntary. Staff is seeking direction from Council on whether to pursue potential inclusion of the policy-related mitigation measures in the upcoming Comprehensive Plan effort and/or prioritize signal timing efforts to support.
