Denton's First Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP)

As global temperatures and extreme weather events increase, local governments are increasingly taking action to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate. The City of Denton has been monitoring climate warming greenhouse gas emissions from the community since 2011 but is now taking steps to reduce these emissions and to increase our community's resilience.

The City is looking for YOUR input as a part of the Climate Action Planning process. There will be several ways to participate, including a survey, public meetings, and focus groups. To learn more and stay up to date on this project, please follow the link below and sign up for alerts.
