On June 30, the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KS (UG) Commission adopted a resolution in support of the KC Regional Climate Action Plan and pursuing its implementation in Wyandotte County.
The Climate Action Plan is a voluntary framework to guide the region’s response to climate change, setting targets for reducing emissions, improving efficiency, and establishing a more resilient future. As we continue to witness, there has been a noticeable increase in severe weather – whether the current heatwave, record rainfall, or fast-moving storms. Addressing climate change today will ensure the public health and safety for generations to come.
“As one of the most visible local governments in our region, the Unified Government’s adoption of this plan is a powerful step forward,” said Mid-America Regional Council Executive Director David Warm. “The UG is demonstrating leadership that will guide its future decisions and investments and also inspire individuals, companies and organizations to take actions that support sustainable communities and economies. Most of the measures in this plan not only protect the climate, they also foster healthy, prosperous communities. This is a win for the climate, and a win for the residents of Wyandotte County.”
