Climate Action Task Force
The city is forming a Climate Action Task Force to enhance City Council awareness of community perspectives on climate change. Applications are due May 23. Interested community members can visit www.BeavertonOregon.gov/ClimateActionTaskForce to apply. Stipends will be offered to members for meeting participation. We are striving to ensure the voices of underserved and vulnerable communities are prioritized, and are encouraging applications from the BIPOC community, as well as community members under age 30 (who will witness the most drastic impacts during their lifetimes). Members will be appointed for up to a three-year term, beginning in July 2021. To ensure the city hears from a diversity of voices, existing city board members are asked to share this opportunity instead of applying themselves.
