San Juan County launches first climate survey

May 31, 2024 – San Juan County residents are invited to participate in a crucial climate survey to help shape the future of our community. This survey is a key part of our efforts to understand the community’s vision, values, and concerns regarding the impacts of climate change. Your input will play a vital role in developing the Climate Element for the Comprehensive Plan and a robust Climate Action Plan (CAP).

The survey is available online and can be accessed here or via the survey link at the top right of the Climate Resilience Planning and Action Project Page at https://engage.sanjuancountywa.gov/climate-action. The anonymous survey takes 12-15 minutes to complete and is available in English and Spanish.

The results of this survey will be analyzed by Cascadia Consulting along with other data from the first phase of public engagement. The responses will provide valuable insights into what the residents of the San Juan Islands value most and their primary concerns regarding climate change. This is your opportunity to influence the policies and actions that will guide San Juan County in addressing climate change.

This initial survey is the first of many engagement opportunities designed to involve the community in the climate resilience planning process. Later this summer, a second survey will be launched to gather input on prioritized strategies. Continuous community involvement is essential for creating meaningful and effective climate policies.
