Climate Action Plan

The Whitefish City Council established a Climate Action Planning Committee on December 5, 2016 through Resolution 16-64. A committee of 10 people and 2 City staff members was appointed by Mayor John Muhlfeld in January.

The City Council resolution directs the Committee to:

Work with City Staff and the Climate Smart Glacier Country partnership to evaluate the City’s energy use and propose specific projects, benchmarks and other recommendations to conserve energy in the City.  The Committee may also propose actions to enhance community resilience and prepare for the effects of climate change.



The committee is developing climate action strategies in nine areas for the City, School District, and Community:

  • Buildings and Energy Use
  • Transportation
  • Water
  • Wastewater
  • Waste Reduction and Green Purchasing
  • Smart Growth
  • Forests and Open Land
  • Food Sourcing
  • Education and Behavior 

All meetings are open to the public.
