At the June 7th City Council meeting, Councilmembers unanimously approved the City of North Bend to join the King County-Climate Collaboration, also known as the K4C.
K4C is a partnership of local governments of all sizes working together to accelerate climate action for a healthier and more resilient region. K4C partners combine their knowledge, resources, and advocacy voices to develop efficiency programs, invest in clean energy, and shape policy that will cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
The June 7th City Council meeting motion involved the authorization of an Interlocal Agreement, joining King County, Bellevue, Bothell, Burien, Issaquah, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Kent, Kirkland, Maple Valley, Mercer Island, Normandy Park, Redmond, Sammamish, Seattle, Shoreline, Snoqualmie, Tukwila and the Port of Seattle to coordinate and enhance the effectiveness of local government climate and sustainability action.
K4C began informally meeting in the early 2010s as a network of government staff sharing best practices and information on climate action. Since then, municipal partners have amplified work to reduce GHG emissions at the county level. Efforts include climate change outreach, coordination in response to climate change, sharing local climate change solutions and efforts made by partners, and working to secure grant funding and other shared resource opportunities that support climate-related projects and programs.
The Interlocal Agreement was reviewed by the Community and Economic Development Committee in May. Committee members agreed that K4C is applicable to the City of North Bend’s Brand Implementation Guidelines, fitting within the Sustainably Managed Growth spoke. Learn more about K4C HERE.
