[ARCHIVED] U.S. Conference of Mayors Honors Mayor Angela Birney for Climate Leadership

REDMOND, WA – Redmond Mayor Angela Birney and the City of Redmond were recognized last week during the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 90th Annual Meeting in Reno, Nevada for the City’s climate preparedness work. Mayor Birney received an Honorable Mention in the Small City category of the 2022 Mayors Climate Protection Awards for the City’s Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment.

Mayor Birney was one of 12 mayors to be recognized for efforts to address the climate crisis. The 2022 Mayors’ Climate Protection Awards winners are the 16th class of mayors to be honored for successful local climate action changing how energy is used and produced in cities, resulting in reduced carbon use and emissions. 

The Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment, a priority within the City’s comprehensive 2020 Environmental Sustainability Action Plan, was completed to inform Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan update and climate preparedness efforts. The assessment also includes a mapping tool to help the City better understand the populations in Redmond that are most vulnerable to climate change.
