Resolution voicing support for climate action initiatives headed to Muncie City Council

MUNCIE, Ind. — Climate change isn't a topic often brought up by local governments, but it will be the central part of a resolution being brought before the Muncie City Council during its April 5 meeting.

The bill, in short, calls for the city to formulate a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions starting in 2022.

Muncie residents have voiced support for climate action initiatives during public input sessions of the Vision 2021 economic development plan and three iterations of the Muncie Action Plan.

The resolution on the table isn't the first time local government has looked into climate issues.

The Metropolitan Plan Commission already worked with several organizations to conduct a baseline greenhouse gas inventory for Muncie and Delaware County.

So what does the resolution being brought before the council actually call for?

The resolution asks for the Muncie City Council to acknowledge that climate change is a threat and that it will "treat the climate crisis as an emergency," according to the legislation draft.

It also asks for the council to partner with the Muncie Action Plan to create a formal climate action plan utilizing data from the greenhouse gas inventory by the planning commission.
