Completed Recommendations (Now Defunct)

Energy and Fuel

EF-6
Support or facilitate development and distribution of local sources of sustainable fuels and availability of fueling infrastructure. Adopt policies to facilitate the development of locally sourced sustainable alternative fuels, those achieving a reduction in lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional fossil fuels (including but not limited to waste- based bio-diesel and methane gas from sources like landfills). Include these policies in regional plans and Local Comprehensive Plans. Identify incentives and modify local code to encourage the establishment of a local alternative energy industry.

Natural Systems

NS-12
Develop long-term turtle-nesting beach preservation and management strategies to reduce nest vulnerability and mortality.

Public Outreach and Engagement

PO-7
Leverage resources for campaign and promotional advertisements by coordinating public transportation messaging in the region to attract non-transit-dependent (choice) riders. Messages should focus on making riding transit “cool.”

Public Policy Advocacy

PP-5
Federal Surface Transportation Authorization. Advocate for new authorization of the federal surface transportation programs with increased priority for funding public transit and non- motorized travel and integrated regional and local planning as means to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. Such a federal program should explicitly incorporate climate change and shift priorities toward programs that encourage reinvestment in existing infrastructure and communities (“fix-it-first” programs), support public transportation and transit-oriented development, and address congestion management through means other than new road building.
