Committee Appointments and their Roles
The ad hoc committee appointed by Mayor Teresa Jacobs met on a monthly basis from March 2013 to April 2014. After reviewing and providing input on the Sustainability Assessment, which provides a summary of Orange County’s current status, the Committee developed a Sustainability Plan with goals, targets, strategies, and metrics covering seven focus areas:
Subcommittees for each of the focus areas, comprised of government staff and external stakeholders, developed the drafts for the Sustainability Assessment and Sustainability Plan for the Sustainability Committee to review and modify as they saw fit. An internal staff Steering Committee also provided input as part of the process of developing the Assessment and Plan.
