In addition to these events, Sustainable Resilient Longmont is advocating for the Longmont City Council to pass a GoEV Cities Resolution. Carbon pollution from transportation makes up more than one third of total emissions and is the single largest contribution to pollution in Colorado. This resolution would declare Longmont a GoEV City and pledge to develop a Transportation Electrification Plan with implementation strategies.
