Plan Ferndale: Climate Action

This survey is intended to replicate the discussion feedback from the October 27th Community Summit Session on Climate Action. You can watch the recorded presentation here or view the presentation slides here.

We value the opinions of all Ferndale stakeholders - whether you live, work, play, pray, or learn here - your voice matters.

Plan Ferndale is an update of the City's Master Land Use Plan and Parks and Recreation Plan and the incorporation of the City's first Climate Action Plan. Read more about it at

Moving from Footprints to Handprints

Footprints are the negative consequences of all that it takes to sustain a person or an organization...the total "cost" of your presence.

Taking positive actions towards sustainable development are your handprints. Recognizing we only have one planet and one place to thrive, our goal is moving away from negative impacts towards leaving positive interventions for the next generation.
