City Council to Vote on Climate Action Resolution on September 7

Sep 06, 2016 -

Tomorrow, September, 7, at 7 pm, the Bend City Council will vote on a Bend Climate Action Resolution that will commit Bend to do its part to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

We’ve been working on this for over a year.  Now that the vote is upon us, we need your help one more time to finally get this resolution passed.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Send an email to the full City Council at council@bendoregon.gov telling them you support the resolution and that you urge them to vote “Yes!”.
  • Attend the meeting to show your support.
    • Show your support by showing up and wearing green.  You don’t have to speak, unless you really want to.
    • If you do want to speak, be sure to arrive by 6:50 so you can sign up (forms by the door to the City Council’s chambers).  Keep your message simple—I support the climate resolution because (fill in the blank). Please pass the resolution.”  Public testimony will start about 7:30.
