GUIDEBOOK FOR GREAT COMMUNITIES: SUPPORT FOR FURTHER ACTION ON RENEWABLE ENERGY
Alberta Ecotrust Foundation appreciates the opportunity to provide feedback on the City of Calgary’s Guidebook for Great Communities. We reviewed the Guidebook through the lens of its potential to support tangible climate change actions in Calgary. Alberta Ecotrust supports the intention and direction of the Guidebook and its efforts to incorporate the Climate Resilience Plan.
We also think it can go further, and outline specific recommendations to strengthen the Guidebook’s support for renewable and low-carbon energy projects.
Alberta Ecotrust values the purpose of the Guidebook for Great Communities and strongly recommends that the Guidebook, and Local Area Plans developed from it, integrate genuine, meaningful climate actions that ensure and support the development of low-carbon energy projects in our communities.
