Penobscot Climate Action is a regional collaboration of 11 towns, led by the Bangor Area Comprehensive Transportation System (BACTS), to strengthen the region’s people, infrastructure, and economy in the face of a changing climate.
The first phase of the project included conducting a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Inventory and Climate Vulnerability Assessment (CVA). These studies helped us understand risk and opportunity for protecting local lives and livelihoods. For more information on our findings from the GHG Emissions Inventory and CVA, please visit the “Reports and Resources” page on our website.
Phase II will build on Phase I by working directly with residents to co-develop strategies that:
foster a vibrant, resilient, low-carbon region;
are directly informed by and centered around local priorities, knowledge, and experiences;
and will be positioned for easy and immediate implementation.
Phase II Timeline
Our goal in Phase II is to reach as many stakeholders as possible, sustain relationships, meaningfully integrate feedback into the project’s process and outcomes, and build pathways for successful implementation. Each stage will include a survey, several pop-ups, and one working group.
Surveys and pop-ups are quick and easy ways to provide feedback that will inform the process and outputs at each stage. To fill out one of our surveys, please check out the “surveys” tab. To find us at a pop up, check out the “events” tab.
Working groups will serve as a consistent group of individuals who have experience in, or are passionate about, certain topics (eg: housing, transportation, economic opportunity, conservation) and will ensure that local expertise, priorities, and feedback are directly incorporated into the project’s proposed strategies and action plans.
