Survey ends Monday,  August 15

Have you taken the Climate Action survey?

The Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP) is a roadmap for how the community will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for climate change impacts, future natural hazards, and increase resiliency. 

Whether you live, work, and/or own a business in the City, we want to hear your ideas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping Ventura meet State reduction goals!  

The 17-question survey takes five minutes to complete and is available in English or Spanish.
