City of Vista climate action plan could make streets safer, environment cleaner, residents say

“Since early June, the city has held six public hearings seeking input on the revised plan, which details ways to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to the hazards of a warming climate, such as hotter summers and more intense wildfires.

Last Tuesday, council members added their feedback on the plan, but the most impassioned comments came from more than two dozen speakers who urged the city to make infrastructure and transportation improvements they said would make the city both safer and greener.

About half of the city’s emissions come from cars and trucks, and nearly a third are generated by energy use, according to the plan. Although the city is on track to cut emissions through increased use of solar and other renewable energy in coming years, greenhouse gases will rise again as the city’s population increases.”
