Climate action goals are the focus of one La Crosse city committee.



With Earth Day being celebrated this weekend, many people might have a list of things they can do to help the environment. 

The city of La Crosse has put together its own Top 10 list of climate action goals to pursue.  The city’s environmental planner, Lewis Kuhlman, tells members of a local climate action committee that they don’t have to worry about achieving all the goals.

“You can do anything,” said Kuhlman, “but you can’t do everything, so it’s important to keep your scope attainable.”

Those goals include extending service hours for city buses, plant more trees, and protect buildings from possible flood damage.

The Top 10 action list adopted by the city council this year also encourages energy efficiency and an increase in solar power.

Kuhlman says there are really 50 actions which a climate steering committee plans to work on. He urged committee members to submit any additions or substitutions they might have for the list.

The city’s list can be viewed online:
