Climate Action Plan-Update Upcoming

The City is currently in the process of updating the CAP in concert with updates in the State climate change regulations. On September 28, 2016, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 32 into law. SB 32 sets a statewide goal of reducing GHG emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) was directed to develop a climate change scoping plan update that would provide the regulations and policies to achieve the 2030 reduction target. On December 14, 2017, CARB finalized “California’s 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan,” providing quantitative summaries of the regulations needed to achieve the 2030 reduction target.

It is important that the CAP update reflect the community character of Chino. As the City moves ahead with developing the CAP update, we would like to hear from the residents and other key stakeholders regarding their perspectives of the CAP and what priorities they would like to see addressed in the CAP update. As a resident and a stakeholder, your input is valuable. Below is a link to the survey designed to understand Chino residents’ and stakeholders ‘perspectives regarding the CAP update.

Sphere of Influence Study

In late 2017, the Chino City Council, after hearing multiple requests for development and annexation of properties within the Sphere of Influence (SOI), directed City staff to develop an Economic Analysis of the SOI. This analysis was required to evaluate four different potential annexation scenarios, and evaluate the budgetary impacts to the City for each scenario, both through revenues received in the form of taxes, and costs incurred in the form of providing services (police, roadway repair, code, enforcement, etc.)

The Public Review Draft of the Sphere of Influence Economic Analysis is now ready. While the SOI Steering Committee will be providing direct review and input to City staff, we encourage the community to review the document and provide comments as well. 

We invite you to review the two documents linked below and to provide your comments in writing to us, either by emailing or mailing it to 13220 Central Ave, Chino, CA 91710.
