The City of Bend is looking for people to apply to a committee whose goal is to reduce fossil fuel use by 40 percent in 2030 and 70 percent by 2050.

The Climate Action Steering Committee is an ad hoc committee that will be appointed by the City Council. The 11-member group will be formed to represent a wide variety of views in the community. There will be two business representatives—one Bend Economic Development Advisory Board member—and one at large, two environmental community representatives, two local government or institutional reps, two at-large individuals, two subject-matter experts (science, community, energy utilities, etc.) and one minor who will be 18 or younger at the time of appointment.

To apply for a position, visit bendoregon.gov/cascapplication and fill out the form. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 2 by 5pm.
