The CLCPA, the Draft Scoping Plan, and Public Hearing April 27

  • What – Rally and speak out for climate justice at the CLCPA Draft Scoping Plan Hearing in Buffalo!

  • When – Wednesday April 27, rally starts at 2:30pm, hearing starts at 3:30pm

  • Where – The Buffalo Central Library, 1 Lafayette Square, Buffalo NY

We recently covered what the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) is and how this groundbreaking legislation starts to put NY on the path of climate resiliency and towards a just transition. The CLCPA’s Draft Scoping Plan, which, when completed, will set the framework for implementation, is now available for public review and comment and NYSERDA (the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority) is holding multiple public hearings on the draft, including one here in Buffalo at the Central Library (1 Lafayette Square) on Wednesday April 27 starting at 3:30pm. Speakers at the hearing will have 2 minutes and do not need to pre-register, but are encouraged to do so.

We need you to join us! We’ll be meeting up with other environmental and climate justice organizations at 2:30pm prior to the hearing out front of the library for a rally before heading in for the hearing, and we will remain for the length of the hearing, which we expect will continue into the evening.

Can’t make it on the 27th? There will also be two online hearings on May 7 and May 11. We also encourage everyone to submit public comments between now and June 10 – our partners at NY Renews have a one-click tool you can use and you can also submit comments directly here.

NY Renews will also be holding two training sessions on Zoom on April 25 and May 9 to prepare for the public hearings – click here to register.

The following list is of resources that you may find helpful for preparing your remarks –

We also held a training for our members with Sierra Club, which you can watch here –

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday April 27 at 2:30pm at the Buffalo Central Library!
