I'm really happy and relieved that this is happening, but I think we need to be way more aggressive. This is going to be much more pressing and 2045 is quite faraway.

Community/school garden

Fremont in general needs more trees and green areas. There is too much cement in this city.

I think that the city is doing a fair job getting policies examined, but a poor job getting them implemented. ore task forces are NOT the answer.

Work to recycle all Fremont trash within Fremont or East Bay region. Taiwan recycles 99% so why can’t we ? It makes no sense to pay fuel costs to ship trash overseas. Plus we need to a model for the World. How about another recycle can for just metal and maybe one for just dry items to further improve quality of recycling

Have community meetings so we can synergies

What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures within your home or neighborhood?
Food waste and food packaging waste is an easy place to start. OLIO food sharing app is one recent idea I saw that may be of benefit went paired with community food banks and sharing resources. What if the city required neighborhood community garbage bins ( like an apartment) to both reduce garbage truck pollution & noise plus promote refuse reduction (1 pick up point Vs every house) ? or at least electric garbage trucks!


What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures within your school, workplace, place of worship, or other location outside your home in which you spend significant time?
I read an article about the health hazards (and negative learning impact) of diesel buses to the students riding them, maybe we should prioritize electrification of the city school bus fleet ASAP.


What is one idea you have for implementing sustainability measures at the community-scale? What would you like the City to do?
1. Subsidize free permitting of solar panel installations, or even hire a city "installation engineer" to review or even produce required drawings for permitting process. THIS is a major cost barrier for local residents to purcahse & install low cost panels independently or reduce contracted pricing on installations.

I really think the enhanced bicycle paths is great work in the right direction (not at Amsterdam level yet!). It still is perceived as too dangerous to actually ride a bike with so many 'texting' drivers on the streets. Has anyone thought about a bike only trail from Quarry lakes /Alameda Creek trail to the back of the Junior high to the backside of Washington High school , to City center plaza to Central park? Basically an alternate vehicle path that would promote getting students, bikers and pedestrians away from the busy roadways?

Consider the quality of life for people living here today before addressing what might happen in 20 years. More open space.


Please use this space to provide any other thoughts or feedback you may have about the City’s work to update Fremont’s Climate Action Plan.
I think the city should stop building where there are vernal ponds. I think the city should not be developing on the west side of the city (ie Cushing Parkway). I think industry is a terrible choice for these areas as are Dumps.
If the city is truly concerned about climate change, start with the basics.
Demand open space with Eco landscape and require trees beyond 5 gallon size to be planted in abundance. Every residence, no matter what type, needs access to recycling bins. Infrastructure needs to be addressed so people aren't on the road for 40 minutes when it's a 7 minute drive. Mandatory replacement of landscape damaged due to traffic accidents or water failure or neglect on all city lands.
