Golden Valley is working to protect its many resources for future generations as well as reduce energy consumption and waste production.
Climate trends suggest that in the next 50 years Minnesota will experience increased precipitation, hotter summers, warmer and wetter winters, and more severe weather events. Such changes could damage infrastructure, drain resources, and impair a City's capacity to provide services and respond to residents' needs.
The Golden Valley City Council recently passed a Resolution Declaring a Climate Emergency Impacting the Environment, Economy, and Human Health.
