RCAP Timeline

The Montgomery County Consortium of Communities, in collaboration with the Montgomery County Planning Commission, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, and Bucknell University, is currently developing a Regional Climate Action Plan (RCAP) to make Montgomery County a more healthy, equitable, resilient, and sustainable community.

The goal of the RCAP is to act as a guide that Montco. municipalities can use to anticipate and respond equitably to the wide-ranging impacts of a changing climate.
