Climate Action Plan


The Gig Harbor City Council is committed to climate change action and understands the emergency of climate change. In January 2022 the Council established a goal to address climate change, and a project action to adopt a climate and sustainability action plan.


In July 2022 the City received a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce Growth Management Services to address climate change through three projects:


  • Facilitate education and outreach sessions with the Climate Change Comprehensive Plan Amendment Committee (CCCPAC), and gather feedback to inform an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan
  • Adopt a Comprehensive Plan amendment incorporating climate change into the Gig Harbor Comprehensive Plan
  • Develop a climate action plan, scope discussed below in further detail

Project Scope

The plan will include a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and analysis, strategy recommendations, and public engagement.  The final report will be delivered ahead of the grant deadline of June 15, 2023.
