Community Development

The City of Long Beach has adopted its first-ever climate action plan. The Long Beach Climate Action Plan (LB CAP), also known as the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, was approved by the City Council on August 16, 2022.

We encourage you to continue participating in shaping the implementation of the LB CAP, as this is just the beginning of an ongoing, collaborative process to make Long Beach a safer, healthier and more sustainable place to live, work and play. The LB CAP will help to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, prepare the community for the impacts of climate change, improve the quality of life and enhance economic vitality in Long Beach.

Long Beach strives to be a more sustainable and resilient city in the face of climate change impacts such as air pollution, extreme heat, drought, coastal storm surge, and sea-level rise. Residents, business owners, students and other community stakeholders are encouraged to get involved by providing input, spreading the word and sharing ideas, priorities and solutions to help achieve the City's climate goals. Help be a climate changemaker in your community! View an LB CAP video
