After the completion of an inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, Town of Zionsville announced officials announced they will spend the rest of 2020 developing a climate action plan to increase sustainability efforts and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The town anticipates a draft of the plan will be complete by the fall. It will be submitted to Mayor Emily Styron and the Zionsville Town Council for review.
Zionsville was chosen as one of 11 communities to be part of Indiana University’s second Resilience Cohort, which was established in 2019 by the Environmental Resilience Institute. The 2020 Cohort is made up of cities and towns that will develop climate action plans this year. The other participants are Carmel, Elkhart, Evansville, Fishers, Fort Wayne, Gary, Goshen, Michigan City, Richmond, and West Lafayette.
