[ARCHIVED] Routt County Climate Action Collaborative Accepting Board Applications

Collaborative Applications NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO, October 26, 2021 – The newly formed Routt County Climate Action Collaborative is accepting community applications for its Board of Directors through Friday, November 12, 2021. 

“We’re seeking citizens from across the Yampa Valley with a passion for Climate Action to help direct our way forward on implementing the Climate Action Plan plan,” commented the city’s Special Projects/Intergovernmental Services Manager Winnie DelliQuadri.

The Routt County Climate Action Collaborative was developed to provide a collaboration and implementation framework for the CAP through regional decision making and alignment. Local government partners recognize the need and benefit to implement best practices to reduce GHG emissions and draw down carbon levels in the atmosphere at the local and regional level.

The Collaboration Board will ideally consist of 9 members, but no more than 11, including a representative from each of the local government partners – Routt County, City of Steamboat Springs and the Towns of Hayden, Oak Creek and Yampa. 

Community representatives shall reflect geographic representation from across the county, as well as from the nonprofit and private sectors, and climate plan interest and experience.

Terms will be three-years with the initial board staggered into one-, two- and three-year categories so that a third of the community board is up annually. The deadline for submitting community applications, which can be found here and also in the city and county websites, is Friday, November 12.

The CAP was developed in support of sustainability efforts which seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), in accordance with the city’s STAR goals, Routt County strategic planning, the GHG Study, and state goals and efforts. Local government partners jointly developed and adopted the Routt County Climate Action Plan earlier this year.
