COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
Los Alamos County’s Sustainability Manager Angelica Gurule invites individuals who live or work in Los Alamos County to visit www.lacnm.com/CAPSurvey to participate in a community survey, the results of which will be used to inform the first-ever Climate Action Plan. The plan is an important step in shaping the county’s commitment to reduce environmental impacts and prepare for a more sustainable and resilient future. The survey is open until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Gurule explains that the survey is anonymous, although if survey takers choose, they may provide a name and email for future updates on the project. The survey asks responders to prioritize environmental concerns, identify measures the county could implement, and specify how passive or aggressive the county should react. Survey results will be used to develop targets and strategies for the Climate Action Plan, anticipated to be complete in 2024.
Additional information regarding the survey and the Climate Action Plan can be accessed at the County’s Sustainability website: www.lacnm.com/sustainability. Results from the survey will be shared on the website in November.
Angelica Gurule is the Los Alamos County Sustainability Manager and will lead the Community Greenhouse Gas Emissions Study and Climate Action Plan.
