Gold Leaf Pilot Program

In 2023 Maplewood and ten other cities and tribal governments are participating in the Gold Leaf Pilot Program. Participants commit to completing and reporting at least two new climate actions during the pilot period such as community renewable energy projects, completion of a climate action plan (climate adaptation and mitigation strategies), resilient tree-planting program, local food buying campaign, climate action budget, and many more opportunities. Through the pilot program Maplewood has chosen to review its Green Building Code for updates and the possibility of adding electric vehicle charging station and renewable energy requirements, and begin Climate Mitigation Planning.
