TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Greater Lafayette Climate Action Plan is moving into Phase-3 and this phase is all about community input.

The Climate Action Plan is a partnership between the city of Lafayette, West Lafayette, and Tippecanoe County. Phase-1 and Phase-2 included appointing local leaders to oversee the different parts of the plan.

In Phase-3, leaders want people to identify areas that could use some environmentally friendly improvements. They're encouraging the community to brainstorm some ideas for solutions. This can be done individually, as a family, or maybe even as a classroom project.

Dave Henderson, the city West Lafayette utility director said the cities and county want to do anything to get everyone involved.

"What sorts of reduction strategies make the most sense for our city? We're hoping that out of these public input sessions that we'll have an idea of what's next," said Henderson.

He said it really will take effort from everyone in order to see a greener and healthier community.

"A lot of times people feel like, 'well, nobody listens to me,' we want to listen," said Henderson. "We have a vision of what that future success looks like and I think together, we can establish goals and move towards that."

The city and county will release an official way of submitting ideas this summer. Over the next few months, leaders will be conducting surveys, public meetings, and targeting different demographics.

Phase-4 will include looking over the ideas and seeing what works and what doesn't. And Phase-5, which is the final phase, will be the implementation of the plan.
