The purpose of a Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) is to compile existing and potential strategies (i.e., actions, projects, and programs) that the City's government and the community can use to address climate change. The CCAP will focus on the efforts San Rafael can take to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate, to the extent feasible at the local level, the potential impacts of climate change. Specifically, the plan will accomplish the following: • Incorporate the City's 2015 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories, which identify sources of greenhouse gas emissions generated by the community and the local government. These inventories will be prepared by the consultant under separate contract with the Marin Climate & Energy Partnership. • Estimate how these emissions may change over time under a business -as -usual forecast. • Identify and quantify State actions that will reduce emissions at the local level. ■ Perform a gap analysis to determine the reductions needed through local programs to meet the State's greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals for 2030 and achieve the City's reduction targets. • Provide energy use, transportation, land use, waste, water, wastewater, and natural system strategies for community and local government action; develop quantitative targets for each action; and quantify greenhouse gas reductions that will be achieved at the local and government operations levels if those targets are achieved. • Incorporate existing sustainability initiatives and planned capital improvement projects. A key objective is to develop a Climate Change Action Plan Update that conforms to the State's requirements for climate action plans. In 2010, the California State Office of Planning and Research adopted revised CEQA Guidelines which allow a local government to streamline project -level analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through compliance with a greenhouse gas reduction plan contained in a general plan, long range development plan, or separate climate action plan. Plans must meet the criteria set forth in section 15183.5 of the CEQA Guidelines, which include: requirements for quantifying existing and projected greenhouse gases; identifying a level of cumulative greenhouse gas emissions that would not be considered significant; specifying measures and standards that would ensure Proposal for San Rafael Climate Change Action Plan Update achievement of this level; and continued monitoring to track progress. The greenhouse gas reduction plan, once adopted following certification of an EIR or adoption of an environmental document, may be used in the cumulative impacts analysis of later projects such as development or infrastructure projects. An environmental document that relies on a greenhouse gas reduction plan for a cumulative impacts analysis must identify those requirements specified in the plan that apply to the project, and, if those requirements are not otherwise binding and enforceable, incorporate those requirements as mitigation measures applicable to the project. Since adoption of the revised CEQA guidelines in 2010, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) has been reviewing draft greenhouse gas reduction plans to determine if these plans meet the State's criteria for GHG reduction strategies that support tiering. While it is ultimately up to the lead agency to make such an assertion and support it with substantial evidence, BAAQMD provides guidance as to what Air District staff must see in draft plans in order for the District to consider writing a letter opining that a draft climate action plan meets the criteria established by the State. In order to ensure greenhouse gas reductions will be achieved, plans must rely on mandatory measures that are actionable by the City. BAAQMD's certification requirements include annual reporting on the implementation of the measures and periodic inventorying of greenhouse gas emissions. SCOPE OF WORK TASK 1. DEVELOPMENT OF BUSINESS -AS -USUAL FORECASTS The consultant will develop a business -as -usual (BAU) forecast of projected community and local government operations emissions for the years 2030 and 2040. The BAU scenario projects emissions in the absence of any policies or actions that would occur beyond the base year to reduce emissions. The forecasts are derived by "growing" baseline emissions by forecasted changes in population, number of households, jobs and vehicle miles traveled. The consultant will utilize Plan Bay Area 2040 Projections and travel demand forecasts developed by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in the BAU projection. TASK 2. IDENTIFICATION OF STATE ACTION S AND THE GAP ANALYSIS The consultant will identify existing State actions that have been approved, programmed and/or adopted and quantify the impact these State actions will have on the BAU forecast. State programs to evaluate and quantify include: ❖ Renewable Portfolio Standard ❖ Light and Heavy Duty Fleet Regulations ❖ Lighting Efficiency and Toxic Reduction Act •:• Residential Solar Water Heater Program Proposal for San Rafael Climate Change Action Plan Update The consultant will prepare a memorandum that summarizes and quantifies the impact these State actions will have on community emissions, and will quantify the additional GHG reductions needed at the local level to achieve local and State GHG reduction goals. TASK 3. MEETINGS WITH THE WORKING GROUP The consultant will attend eight Working Group meetings. The consultant will prepare and present a GHG Inventory review for the May meeting, and will prepare and present GHG reduction calculations for draft programs at subsequent meetings, as needed. Meeting times are estimated to be 3 hours. TASK 4. CITY COUNCIL STUDY SESSION The Consultant will attend one City Council study session and participate in presentation and explanation of technical data as appropriate. TASK 5. DEVELOPMENT OF CCAP WORKBOOK The consultant will prepare an Excel Workbook that quantifies potential GHG reductions from the implementation of local actions that will be included in the Climate Change Action Plan. The workbook will utilize 2015 emissions as the baseline and will incorporate BAU emission projections and GHG reductions expected to result from State programs. TASK 6. DRAFTING OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION PLAN All of the prior tasks will be integrated into a comprehensive Climate Change Action Plan for staff review. Upon staff comments on the administrative review draft document, the consultant will prepare a revised draft Climate Change Action Plan for presentation to the Working Group. Any necessary revisions will be made based on the group's input, and a final draft Climate Action Plan will be prepared for adoption by the City Council. TASK 7. BAAQMD REVIEW OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION PLAN The consultant will submit the draft Climate Change Action Plan to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) for review and comment, and will work with BAAQMD staff to revise programs as necessary to earn BAAQMD approval. TASK 8. CITY COUNCIL ADOPTION The consultant will attend one City Council adoption meeting and revise the draft plan as necessary based on Council direction. The final Climate Change Action Plan will be provided as a Word document. Proposal for San Rafael Climate Change Action Plan Update M PROJECT DELIVERABLES The following products are included within the scope of services. All products will be provided to the City electronically. A reproducible hard copy for making additional copies will be provided upon request.
