Flagstaff City Council unanimously approved the city’s climate change action and adaptation plan Nov. 20, but now that it has been passed, it begs the question of how it may be implemented and paid for.

The plan, which has been before the council for review for two months, hopes to prepare the city for the increasing effects of a warming climate as well as reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 based on 2016 levels.

Councilmember Eva Putzova said she hoped that with the passage of the plan, it could be integrated into the next budget cycle so that the city could begin implementation.
