Sustainability Action Plan 4 (SAP-4)
Exciting news! At its October 22 meeting, the City Council adopted Sustainability Action Plan 4 (SAP-4). The plan outlines 81 new actions and 79 already-approved actions for City staff to implement through Fiscal Year 2021-2022. The plan includes funding for active transportation programs and infrastructure designed to encourage the community to choose alternatives to driving, as well as programs aimed at supporting electric vehicle adoption. SAP-4 includes several programs and incentives that help residents and businesses reduce both their energy bill and carbon footprint through energy efficiency measures and the use of clean energy. Additionally, there are numerous programs that will help residents and businesses get the tools they need to take action on climate, save money, and engage with the broader Mountain View community. These programs range from community challenges to neighborhood disaster preparedness to civic engagement to green business certification. SAP-4 also provides support for plant-based diet community education and engagement, and funding for programs aimed at increasing the City’s tree canopy cover.
