Comprehensive Environmental & Climate Action Plan
Meet the Team
Planning efforts for the Comprehensive Environmental and Climate Action Plan are being led by two key committees-- an internal committee, the Environmental Planning Task Force (EPTF) and an external committee, the Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC).
Environmental Planning Task Force
City staff formed the EPTF to ensure that affected departments (including Transportation, Parks & Recreation, Sanitation, Dallas Water Utilities, Economic Development, Planning & Urban Design, and others) were regularly convening to discuss CECAP progress and topics of interest. The EPTF has met twice and successfully improved the City’s capacity to consider efficacy and potential breadth of the CECAP. It also serves to ensure that the CECAP development supports and is consistent with other ongoing planning efforts such as the Strategic Mobility Plan.
Stakeholder Advisory Committee
The SAC was formed through collaboration and nomination by three identified environmental and business leaders (Earthx, Public Citizen, University of Texas-Arlington) to comprise a diverse group representing education, public health, neighborhood and environmental advocacy, housing, urban agriculture, public agencies, and large and small business interests. The SAC has met twice to review data and help develop a vision and goals for the CECAP. SAC Members are listed below:
Dallas Environmental Justice Network
Texas Campaign for the Environment (Corey Troiani)
Climate Reality Project (Roger Knudson)
Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (Dex Beyene)
Southwest Airlines (Jesse Nikkel)
