Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti signed the city's first-ever, comprehensive sustainability plan last Wednesday, which lays out major environmental goals for the city to reach by 2035.
Environment California's Michelle Kinman wrote on social media with a photo of the event: "Proud to stand with members of the LA Clean Energy Coalition and Mayor Eric Garcetti today at the launch of the city's first ever comprehensive sustainability plan. Time to roll up our sleeves and get to work making 1500 MW of local solar a reality!"
The plan includes several ambitious goals, including sourcing 50 percent of water locally and having zero days where air pollution reaches unhealthy levels. Some proposals are already in place, while others will be added on a rolling basis.
If all the goals in the 105-page plan are enacted, they could have an incredible impact on Los Angeles and the surrounding environment.
