It is no surprise to anyone that our rain storms are more ferocious, our heat or drought or freeze or blizzards are all more extreme. Albemarle County local government must plan for adaptation of operations and to assist citizens to become more resilient. Our survival depends on this work.
The Local Climate Action Planning Process (LCAPP) was an effort begun in 2011 by the County of Albemarle, the City of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia to work collaboratively with a large group of business leaders and environmental groups on the regional topic of energy and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. 12 years later the three jurisdictions are taking action based on the adaptation and resiliency recommendations of the plan.
