RMCO's Colorado Climate Network

RMCO and other organizations in May 2009 launched a new Colorado Climate Network to support local climate programs. RMCO administers the Network, which is run for and guided by local governments in Colorado that have or are starting local climate-protection and climate-adaptation programs.

The announcement of the new network was made by Mayors John Hickenlooper of Denver and Doug Hutchinson of Fort Collins and the executive directors of the Colorado Muncipal League and the Colorado Association of Ski Towns.

The network has its own, separate website, at Please go there for full details of the network, including the list of the current members, the services offered by the network, and information on how to join.

The Colorado Climate Network is an outgrowth of RMCO's Colorado Climate Project, which included recommendations for climate actions by local governments as well as the state government.
