Climate and Our Environment

Laurie recognizes the unique beauty and ecological diversity of Lane County and is dedicated to its preservation. Urgent action is needed to combat the escalating impacts of climate change. Laurie has taken decisive steps to:

  • Initiate projects aimed at significantly reducing the county's carbon footprint.

  • Prioritize the creation of living-wage, green energy jobs.

  • Successfully advocate for passage of the county's first Parks Levy; resulting in historic investments to improve trail and water access, introduce new outdoor programming for youth, and enhance accessible recreational opportunities. 

  • Expand charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and approve the county's inaugural bicycle master plan.
