Public Comment Process

See how New Yorkers like you helped inform the Climate Action Council’s Scoping Plan.

On December 20, 2021, the Climate Action Council voted to release the Draft Scoping Plan for public comment. January 1, 2022 marked the beginning of a comment period to receive feedback from the public, and the public comment period closed July 1, 2022. The Council has since incorporated this feedback from the public into the Scoping Plan.
