The Town of Telluride is updating it's CLIMATE ACTION PLAN to continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve our climate goal of being carbon neutral. Do you live or work in the town of Telluride or a nearby community and what is your definition of Climate Change? Is it important to you that the Town of Telluride takes action to mitigate climate change in our community?
Please share your thoughts! Some ideas can include building, transportation, and waste.
1. Mandate all tourists and out of town vehicles (except workers) park outside town and take shuttle. Saves gas emmissions. Provide a sensibly located free parking lot for them.
2. Trim back or top many of the giant trees all over town. It allows for more solar gain instead of additional heat needs. Also it restores lost views.
