Fremont’s proposed Climate Action Plan doesn’t do much — at least not over the next few years.
Read the plan here, and check out the verbs: “Continue, collaborate, cooperate, consider.” Pretty mild stuff.
But one of the items the city wants to consider is a conservation ordinance on residences. It would require conservation upgrades when a house is sold. Real estate interests are so opposed to that that they’re still here at 10 p.m. during the most boring council meeting of the year even though there’s no guarantee the council will ever approve it.
And listening to the council members, the real estate guys have nothing to worry about.
