YVSC Climate Action presentation to Steamboat Springs City Council
Tuesday, February 27
124 10th St., Steamboat Springs
Colorado is emerging as a leader in climate action, and communities as big as Denver and as small as Fraser–and many ski towns–have committed to work on climate resilience and mitigation.
At the City Council meeting on February 27, YVSC will be presenting options for the City to take formal action to fight climate change locally and build economic and community resilience for impacts due to climate change. YVSC is asking the City to sign on to the Compact of Colorado Communities.
Make your voice heard
YVSC is scheduled to be on the agenda at 5:30 p.m. We encourage businesses and residents (of all ages) to speak during public comment. YVSC will have “Take Action” signs for members of the audience who want to show their support. The agenda and links to packet materials for the meeting are posted here.

Take YVSC’s online climate action pledge
Sign the pledge and commit to just two simple actions to curb your carbon emissions. The more pledges we collect, the more support we can show for local climate action.
Local businesses urge City to Take Action
We will also be presenting a letter signed by more than 100 local businesses and organizations urging local climate action. Businesses are also placing an ad in the Steamboat Today urging the City to act on climate change. The groundswell of support from the business community has been inspiring!
