City of Logan residents are encouraged to provide feedback on a ‘greenprint’ for a more sustainable future.
The new Climate Change Resilience Strategy 2021-2031 is part of Logan City Council’s vision to become a carbon neutral and green region.
“This is an important part of Council’s long-term plan to build climate change resilience and encourage everyone to provide feedback on the strategy,” Environment Chair, Deputy Mayor Jon Raven said.
In a step towards reducing energy use, Council has installed more than 1000 kilowatts (kW) of solar photovoltaic panels on Council-owned buildings.
The combined power generation is expected to save an estimated $200,000 a year in electricity costs and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1150 tonnes annually.
“Our support of the renewables industry is also creating jobs in Logan,” Cr Raven said.
“To achieve our vision of becoming carbon neutral, we must improve our knowledge of climate change and having community input is vital to this strategy’s success.”
The Draft Climate Change Resilience Strategy 2021 – 2031 | Have Your Say Logan City online survey is open until Sunday, May 9.
