1. Tell us about yourself. (Please check all that apply.)
I live in Sunnyvale.


2. What do you think about the City's current efforts to address climate change locally?
I am supportive


Any additional comments about the City's efforts to address climate change?
I applaud efforts to move aggressively! Leadership on climate action must come from cities and states, given the political realities of our country.


3. What do you think of Sunnyvale's proposal to meet the State's long-term target of reducing emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050 (carbon neutrality)?
Target is appropriate


Any additional comments on the City's proposed long term target?
I'm no expert. I really need others to sort out the science & info and tell me what goal we must achieve.

4c. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Plays in Strategy 3?

5. Are there any other Plays that you think are missing from the Draft Playbook?
Again, I'm no expert. Seems there is lots of room for more definition to various plays, which I will look to others to provide. I'm willing to endeavor to change what I do once others have sorted out what will have impact.


Any additional comments on the Plays?
Is Strat #3 agressive enough? For ex, seems like higher goals for zero-emission cars would not be so tough around here; not sure about other vehicles.


6. This concludes Part 1 of the survey. Thank you for your input. Would you like to go to Part 2 to provide more feedback on the Playbook?
Yes. Please take me to Part 2 to provide more feedback.

Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 3?
Rationale for ones I rated medium... 3D: WE MUST DO ALL WE CAN and not expect regional entities will fix transportation. 3K: Just don't think this will be a hard sell around here, although that may be a reason to be sure to cover it well.


10. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 4?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 4?
4D: Seems we've done lots here already. 4F: Good we have others who focus on trees. 4I: Maybe I'm wrong, but this seems like something for a bit down the road; maybe we have larger asks of businesses.


11. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 5?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 5?
5F: Maybe this would be big, but would it work to expand communications beyond Sunnyvale residents? (Many workers live elsewhere.)


12. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 6?



13. Would you like to share any final thoughts about the Draft Playbook?
What a tremendous effort. Thanks so much for all the hard work!! It is great to have all this organized into something we can start using now and will be able to build upon over time.

1. Tell us about yourself. (Please check all that apply.)
I live in Sunnyvale.


2. What do you think about the City's current efforts to address climate change locally?
I am supportive, but have concerns


Any additional comments about the City's efforts to address climate change?
The city does not address much easier issues such as traffic safety, speeding, etc, which makes me question the feasibility of harder goals.


3. What do you think of Sunnyvale's proposal to meet the State's long-term target of reducing emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050 (carbon neutrality)?
Target is not ambitious enough


Any additional comments on the City's proposed long term target?
Full electrification of buildings should be a must now, not in 50 years. Fossil fuel vehicles need to be taxed now, not some decades later.

Quickly phase in carbon neutral fuels for cars, trucks, construction machinery. Carbon neutral example: oil made from atmospheric Co2 + solar or wind, or biofuels. They can use existing infrastructure and equipment.


6. This concludes Part 1 of the survey. Thank you for your input. Would you like to go to Part 2 to provide more feedback on the Playbook?
Yes. Please take me to Part 2 to provide more feedback.


7. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 1?

How is SVCE providing 100% renewables all the time?


8. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 2?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 2?
The key is to make gas not economical.


9. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 3?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 3?

9. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 3?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 3?
3.B Reducing parking spaces / increasing time restrictions penalizes large families where ride-sharing does not make sense. 3.E We need better bike paths across the city. Not just to/from schools. For example, it is impossible to get from West Sunnyvale to the Steven's creek trail using bike paths. Bernardo does not have any bike lanes South of Knickerbocker.


10. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 4?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 4?
4.1 General comment - With China no longer importing recyclables from the US, how does this plan address the growing pile of cardboard and plastic accumulating and not getting recycled? 4.A - The current food scrap program is completely untenable for residents. Make it easier to use before expanding the program. 4.H Education at the city-level on low-carbon food does not sound like a good investment of resources. This should be a state-level initiative. If not a state-level initiative, look to an organization like Seafood Watch (https://www.seafoodwatch.org/about-us) that operates well beyond the boundaries of Monterey.


11. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 5?



Any additional comments on the Moves in Strategy 5?
5.D - I don't see a sponsored speaker series as an effective investment by the city unless there is a commitment to stream / record the sessions and then promote access to these speaker sessions through online resources. It is incredibly difficult to get people out of their homes. 5.E - I'm a big fan of this. I don't think our goals are achievable without educating our next generation of citizens.


12. How would you rate your enthusiasm for the Moves in Strategy 6?



13. Would you like to share any final thoughts about the Draft Playbook?
Great job in putting an overall strategy together!
