Reducing Carbondale’s impact on climate change takes center stage at the annual Neighborhood
Alliance Meeting, scheduled for Saturday, February 3, starting at 10 a.m. The event will be held at
the Carbondale Public Library and will also be accessible via Zoom facilitated by the Library.
This two-hour gathering serves as a valuable source of information about our community.
Attendees can learn about how neighborhoods are addressing current challenges; what changes are
in the works at the City; and upcoming events organized by community organizations. Reports will
cover updates from the previous year’s meeting on topics of gun violence, heat islands, and
community development, as well as a preview of the process to write the next Comprehensive Plan
and an explanation of Code Red, Carbondale’s disaster preparedness communication.
Of particular focus this year is a proposal to reduce city-wide greenhouse gas emissions while
supporting the local economy through the development of solar energy. City Planner Lauren Becker
will present “The Energy Sovereignty, Security, & Democracy Proposal” followed by a Q&A session.
The meeting is open to the public. For those preferring online access, registration is available at
