The Alexandria City Council unanimously adopted the updated Environmental Action Plan (EAP) 2040 in July 2019. The EAP is a comprehensive road map and affirms Alexandria’s commitment to lead by example for a thriving, sustainable community. The Environmental Action Plan 2040 updated the 2009 EAP 2030 and includes emerging technology, evolving infrastructure needs, and new approaches to reducing the City and community’s impact on the environment.
The EAP 2040 incorporates ten topic sections with an average of two goals and four to six actions in each goal. The City will provide annual updates to track the EAP's progress and its implementation. Check back around Earth Day 2020 for more information!
