"Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, D, has released the Seattle Climate Action Plan, which contains 12 initiatives for helping the city meet its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050," reports Katie Pyzyk.

The Climate Action Plan includes the plan to consider congestion pricing, as detailed in a Planetizen post last week.

"Several other initiatives revolve around electric vehicles (EVs), such as further electrifying the municipal fleet; passing an ordinance this year mandating that new or renovated parking lots include EV charging infrastructure; and working with stakeholders toward electrification for all new for-hire vehicles," according to Pyzyk.

Mike Eliason followed the release of the Climate Action Plan with commentary that seems more skeptical than optimistic.
