ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 22, 2021—The Montgomery County Council will host a virtual Climate Change Town Hall meeting on Thursday, Dec. 2 from 7 to 9 p.m. through Zoom.

Councilmembers have scheduled this time to answer questions and listen to concerns from community members regarding climate change and the environment.

It's time for us to get serious and take bold, aggressive action to address this crisis,” said Council President Tom Hucker, who also serves as chair of the Council’s Transportation and Environment Committee. "This town hall is a great opportunity for residents to share their feedback and vision for climate action and learn more about what steps the County is taking to move toward a more resilient and equitable future."

Residents are encouraged to sign up and submit their questions beforehand. Register in advance for this webinar here: After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email directly from Zoom containing information about how to join the webinar.

The virtual Climate Change Town will be streamed live on the Council’s web page via YouTube (MoCoCouncilMD) and on Facebook Live (MontgomeryCountyMdCouncil) and can also be watched on County Cable Montgomery on channels 30 (Fios), 1056 (RCN) and 996 (Xfinity).
