Background / Analysis: In response to Council direction at the February 18, 2020 meeting, City Staff published an RFP on July 23rd in the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, Peninsula Daily News, the American Planning Association RFP webpage, and on the City’s Newsflash and Bids and RFP’s pages. At the August 7, 2020 deadline, two consulting firms had submitted proposals. The Planning Division formed a review and selection committee comprised of a Planning staff member, a Public Works and Utilities staff member, a Planning Commissioner, and a representative of the community’s climate action volunteer group. The selection committee evaluated the proposals using a qualitative scale and determined that both responding firms should be invited to a virtual interview. After interviews, the committee decided unanimously that Cascadia Consulting Group (CCG) should be awarded the contract. The firm’s references were favorable, and the project manager was notified of the committee decision to award the contract on October 16th. Planning staff, with the assistance of the selection committee, drafted a statement of work with four tasks: Task 1 – Kick-Off Meeting & Project Management Task 2 – Public Outreach & Participation Plan Task 3 – Community & Municipal Greenhouse Gas Inventory Task 4 – Climate Resiliency Plan On November 17, 2020 City Council voted to approve the selection committees’ recommendation to award the contract to CCG and move forward with the four project tasks and a final contract was signed by the City and CCG on December 18th. The Task 1 Kick-off meeting is scheduled to take place the week of January 25-29. Staff is recommending that the Planning Commission select a member or members of the Commission to act as its representative and liaison in order to provide valuable and vital input during the process and report back to the Planning Commission as the project commences without violating the Washington State Public Meetings Act.

Scope of Services Purpose The overall purpose of this Scope of Services is to define Consultant services to provide assistance in managing Public Outreach and completing a Community and Municipal Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Climate Resiliency Plan for Port Angeles. This Scope of Services will also provide for the necessary management oversight of the project. The following major tasks will be completed by Cascadia: Task 1 – Kick-Off Meeting & Project Management Task 2 – Public Outreach & Participation Plan Task 3 – Community & Municipal Greenhouse Gas Inventory Task 4 – Climate Resiliency Plan Assumptions: 1) Cascadia reserves the opportunity to shift budget between work tasks and the subconsultant tasks upon written notice to the City’s project manager and their written consent. 2) The City will perform all Department of Commerce and other agency reporting requirements to incorporate the Climate Resiliency Plan into the City’s Comprehensive Plan. 3) The City will provide final decision on the Greenhouse Gas Inventory base year. 4) Cascadia will act as project manager of volunteer group and report to the City’s project manager. Task 1 – Kick-Off Meeting & Project Management Task 1.1 Kick-off meeting Cascadia will convene an initial kick-off meeting to help us understand the City’s climate efforts to date in the context of the climate resiliency project and make key decisions regarding project methodologies, scopes, and boundaries. The kick-off participants will discuss the project’s ultimate goals and outcomes, and how to meet those outcomes through consultant team, City, external stakeholder, and community participation. Cascadia will also work with the City to identify potential forums for public engagement, explore existing community involvement and attitudes around climate planning, and identify opportunities to dovetail this project with other City initiatives. As part of this process, the kick-off group City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 2 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 will discuss the City’s Comprehensive Plan and how best to structure the Climate Resiliency Plan to integrate seamlessly with it. Task 1.2 Finalized and approved project work plan and schedule The result of the kick-off meeting will be that the City and Cascadia teams agree on key project elements and roles, have a shared understanding of the project’s process and milestones. Cascadia will document the results of the kick-off meeting in a final project work plan and schedule. Project Work Plan and Schedule shall include: 1. Various tasks description, task ownership, output, and completion date associated with specific project deliverables /outcomes 2. Key Milestone Description and Dates 3. Regular schedule of meetings – quarterly perhaps – for purposes of Status update for the Council, planning commission, and other concerned agencies. 4. Public Meetings led by the City 5. Public Meetings led by Cascadia Assumptions 1) The Project Work Plan and Schedule can be modified, with the exception of key project deliverable dates. Task 1.3 Project Communication Once the project is underway, Cascadia will continue to coordinate with the City, including participating in biweekly check-in calls. Cascadia will identify and proactively elevate potential scope or budget issues, before they become problems that could affect the project’s success. Task 1.4 Invoices with activity reports by task Using Deltek Vision project management software, Cascadia will also provide monthly invoices and progress reports that cover budget, timeline, and deliverables. Cascadia will proactively monitor the project’s progress and immediately inform the City, by phone and/or email, of any deviations from the planned schedule and budget or other unforeseen challenges. Assumptions 1) Monthly invoices to be submitted by the 15th of each month. 2) Agendas for bi-weekly check-ins to be sent in advance. City Deliverables Cascadia Deliverables • Project Kickoff Stakeholder List • Comprehensive Plan Analysis with Planning Commission input • Draft Workplan Presentation to Planning Commission • Final Workplan Presentation to City Council • Final Project Work Plan and Schedule • Memos Briefing the results of the Kick-off Meeting & subsequent City/Consultant Biweekly Meetings City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 3 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 Task 2 – Public Outreach & Participation Plan Task 2.1 Public Outreach and Participation Plan Development Inclusive and equitable community engagement is a central component in how Cascadia approaches climate resiliency planning. Inclusive engagement leads to more community buy-in for planning outcomes and more effective and equitable implementation, fostering a feeling of ownership and investment that sets climate resiliency actions up for long-term success. To ensure an inclusive community engagement process, Cascadia will work with the City (including City Council and the Planning Commission) and key community leaders and volunteers on a Public Outreach and Participation Plan. The following questions will be considered in developing the Public Outreach and Participation Plan: • Who has not historically had a seat at the table? What groups are most vulnerable to climate impacts or at risk of displacement due to City environmental policies? • How will local partners be inclusively and meaningfully engaged? • How will barriers to participation be reduced? What are the right messages and platforms to ensure that all community members have the opportunity to be involved? • How will equity and social justice be reflected in the policy framework and sustainability strategies developed in this project? This plan will directly inform how the City and Cascadia will engage businesses, local organizations, suppliers, residents, and community volunteers throughout the climate planning process. This strategy will be tailored to meet the City’s goals and available level of resources and will serve as the foundation for public engagement across all phases of the climate planning process. The Plan will give the City a detailed framework in implementing effective community outreach and engagement, and Cascadia will provide additional support and assistance to ensure robust community engagement. Through the development of the Public Outreach and Participation Plan, Cascadia will identify engagement needs to support Tasks 3 and 4. Task 2.2 Workplan for Community Volunteer Group Management The Public Outreach and Participation Plan will provide a detailed workplan to ensure regular communications and collaboration for coordinating with the City, the project team, and community Cascadia’s Engagement Approach For over 27 years, Cascadia has built trusted partnerships, valued different perspectives, and engaged across cultural barriers and diverse viewpoints to help people of all backgrounds come together to forge innovative new responses to environmental problems. Cascadia has made it our mission to inclusively and equitably inspire and empower communities, and see this ownership— the direct involvement of those who are impacted by the policies at hand—as the core of the civic experience. Cascadia is practiced in creating spaces for sharing every voice around the table (or on the screen) in deliberation, no matter their attitudes or where they fall on the political spectrum, and achieving outcomes in the form of recommendations that participants feel proud of. Cascadia does not seek attention in this role; we are simply part of the container within which people of all backgrounds can come together, learn, deliberate, and build solutions from the ground up. City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 4 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 volunteer groups in data collection for the GHG (see Task 3) that will foster community ownership and agency in this climate resiliency planning process. Assumptions: 1) The workplan will integrate into the Final workplan and schedule deliverable created in Task 1 Task 2.3 Community Engagement and Key Messaging Materials The Public Outreach and Participation Plan will include key messaging and engagement materials, such as email templates, social media templates and graphics, a communication and messaging guide, and an FAQ document, that will help support communication and outreach conducted by City staff and community volunteers regarding the Climate Resiliency Plan and volunteer data collection efforts. The City, Cascadia team, and if desired, volunteer group, will work together to identify the specific messaging and engagement materials to prepare throughout the course of the process, consistent with available task budget. The Public Outreach and Participation Plan will be approximately 15-20 pages long (excluding appendices) and include: • A list of outreach and participation goals and actions • A list of high-priority populations and stakeholders to engage • Strategies and tactics for public engagement • Workplan for Community Volunteer Group Management • Key Messaging and engagement materials Assumptions 1) Public outreach support may include planning and facilitating of key community meetings (logistical organization, agenda development, and post-meeting summaries), providing data collection support, developing surveys and websites to facilitate community feedback, providing training opportunities, and providing technical assistance (to be defined by final Public Outreach and Participation Plan). 2) Cascadia will work with volunteer sub-group dedicated to community engagement as appropriate and within available budget. City Deliverables Cascadia Deliverables • Key community leader identification • Identification of available City resources • Development of City website engagement materials. • Draft Workplan Presentation to Planning Commission for recommendation to City Council. • Final Workplan Presentation to City Council for approval. • Draft and final Public Outreach and Participation Plan, including workplan, key messaging and engagement materials • Support for public outreach and community stakeholder engagement City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 5 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 Task 3 – Community & Municipal Greenhouse Gas Inventory This task will include five stages: 1. Emissions and demographic data collection and organization; 2. Data analysis through ICLEI’s ClearPath tool; 3. GHG inventory report which identifies top-emissions sources; 4. A presentation of inventory data and findings to City Council and Planning Commission; and 5. Clear and comprehensive City Staff training on inventory methodology and assumptions. A timeline with projected completion dates for inventory deliverables will be included in the overall project workplan created in Task 1. Additionally, inventory timelines and progress will be outlined and monitored in the data collection checklist. Task 3.1 Inventory Methodology Confirmation Cascadia will develop a comprehensive data collection checklist for the community and government operations inventories that is compatible with ICLEI’s ClearPath tool and serves as a traceable record of data sources for future inventories. The checklist will be built around the requirements and organization of the U.S. Community Protocol and the Local Government Operations Protocol to facilitate easy transfer into ClearPath. Assumptions 1) If sufficient local data is not available through surveying and public engagement, Cascadia will use regional or national estimations, as stipulated by the U.S. Community Protocol and Local Government Operations Protocol. Task 3.2 Data Collection Cascadia will work with the City and volunteer group to help locate and transcribe data owned by the City and provide contact information for outside data sources, when available. This data collection phase will include solicitation of two types of data: 1) Activity data, such as kWh and vehicle miles traveled; and 2) Emission factors, such as utility-specific emissions profiles or regional eGRID values. Emissions Source Potential Data Collection Source(s) Scope 1 Heating fuel consumption Activity Data: City of Port Angeles Public Utilities; other vendors as applicable Emissions Factors: Utility-specific emission factors, if available; U.S. Community Protocol default fuel emission factors Solid waste disposal and facilities Activity Data: Port Angeles Landfill, Waste Connections of Washington, Washington State Department of Ecology, and waste haulers Emissions Factors: Washington Department of Ecology waste characterization studies, local landfill/utility data if available In-boundary transportation: passenger and commercial vehicles, water transport Activity Data: Regional Travel Demand Model, if available; the Port of Port Angeles, Black Ball Ferry Line, Clallam Transit (county public transit authority), Peninsula Regional Transportation Planning Organization, EPA MOVES model Emissions Factors: EPA MOVES model City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 6 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 Using the tools created in the Public Engagement Plan (e.g., surveys and interviews), Cascadia will coordinate closely with external agencies such as local community organizations and businesses to obtain the most granular and up-to-date data possible for a robust and informative inventory. Assumptions 1) All inventory and activity data will be compiled and summarized in an Excel data management workbook and then uploaded into ICLEI’s ClearPath tool for analysis. Task 3.3 Perform Inventory and Prepare Inventory Report Cascadia will assist the volunteer group to conduct a greenhouse gas inventory that includes communitywide and City operations emission and will prepare a Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report that summarizes the methodology and findings of the community and municipal inventories. Assumptions: 1) All inventory data will be organized into file folders and summarized into one comprehensive Excel workbook that will be delivered to the City: a) The workbook will be thoroughly reviewed for quality control, neatly organized for ease of use, and carefully documented for transparency and replicability. For example, we typically begin each of our Excel workbooks with a hyperlinked table of contents to facilitate navigation and understanding of individual inventory components and datasets. Cascadia has a quality control (QC) team that will review all quantitative products to ensure accuracy and consistency. b) To ease entry into ClearPath, the workbook will correspond directly to ClearPath’s sector-specific calculators. c) The workbook will highlight the data necessary to calculate emissions in ClearPath. d) The goal will be to provide the City with all the information needed to conduct subsequent inventories accurately and efficiently. Task 3.4 Staff and Volunteer Training and Hand Off The following approach will be taken to ensure all information is accounted for and the City and Volunteers are prepared and equipped to continue future greenhouse gas inventory work: 1. Complete file packaging: Cascadia will package all relevant documents into one organized place so that City staff have intuitive, transparent, and streamlined access to all data sources and analysis files. As needed, Cascadia will include files that provide step-by-step guidance for conducting the inventory, such as PowerPoint slides with screenshots for each step. Cascadia has already created similar materials using the EPA MOVES model to quantify non-road emissions sources. Wastewater treatment Total Emissions: City of Port Angeles's Utility Services, Washington State Department of Ecology, or U.S. Community Protocol’s population-based emissions models Scope 2 Electricity consumption Activity Data: City of Port Angeles Public Utilities (Electric Utility Fund) and Clallam Public Utility District, as needed. Emissions Factors: Utility-specific emissions factors, or EPA’s eGRID Scope 3 Industrial process Total Emissions: The Port of Port Angeles, Port Angeles Log Yard, U.S. Community Protocol’s population-based emissions models City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 7 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 2. Detailed documentation: Cascadia will create a single comprehensive Excel workbook that contains all the information needed to update the inventory, including contact information for data sources, step- by-step methodologies, listed underlying assumptions, and transparent computations. If budget allows, this file can also provide placeholders for future years so that future data collection and entry is straightforward. Housing this information in Excel, rather than in a Word document, makes the underlying data and methodologies easier to understand, reference, and update in the future. Cascadia will also populate ClearPath with underlying assumptions and data documentation, and will walk through the ClearPath tool with City staff to ensure that information is accessible and understandable to future users. 3. Presentation of data: Cascadia will prepare a 10-15-slide PowerPoint presentation for up to two meetings (City Council and Planning Commission). The final presentation will include GHG inventory data, top sources and drivers, graphics, tables, and comparison to reduction targets. Materials will be provided at least two weeks in advance for staff review and inclusion in the agenda packet. 4. Training sessions: Cascadia will sit down with City staff to go through each step of the inventory process. Cascadia anticipates two, 1-2-hour sessions—one session to review the materials and the methodology for the base year inventory that was completed and another session to test update capacity using a mock year scenario. Cascadia recommends conducting the training with at least two City staff members to ensure redundancy should future role or staffing changes occur. These training sessions will be critical for ensuring that all documentation provides the necessary information for updating the inventory over time; Cascadia anticipates needing to update guidance documentation in an iterative manner as the trainings are conducted. City Deliverables Cascadia Deliverables • City Council and Planning Commission Memos • Coordinated review of draft deliverables • Presentation of interim results to the Planning Commission • Data collection checklist • Populated Excel inventory workbook • Data uploaded to ICLEI ClearPath • GHG Report for community and municipal inventories • PowerPoint Presentation for Planning Commission and City Council • City staff training and materials Task 4 – Climate Resiliency Plan In developing this Plan with the City, Cascadia will ensure that there is robust engagement and participation from community members, local organizations, and businesses as well as a strategic focus on implementation. The following sections provide additional subtasks on the key components of plan development. Task 4.1 Strategy Assessment and Selection Cascadia will build upon previous work done by the City, various groups such as the Climate Action Planning Group (CAPG), any results from the FEWsion F4R supply chain study, City staff engagement, public outreach and participation, and with peer communities to identify a suite of suitable, bold, and City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 8 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 leading edge actions, organized by sector and strategy, to include in the Climate Resiliency Plan to meet the City’s near- and long-term goals and targets. After identifying a suite of potential strategies, Cascadia will utilize a high-level qualitative multi-criteria analysis to arrive at a prioritized shortlist of actions for inclusion in the Climate Resiliency Plan. After the multi-criteria analysis, Cascadia will prepare the final set of strategies and actions for City and public review. Assumptions: 1) Peer communities include but are not limited to Everett, Whatcom County, Kitsap County, Tacoma, Bainbridge Island, and Renton. 2) The plan may be adjusted based on further research and client team input. To prepare the initial suite of potential strategies, the Cascadia team will rely heavily on the pre-existing list of potential strategies and actions, refining it to reflect strategies and actions that are the most likely to support carbon neutrality and otherwise rank well in the multi-criteria analysis to generate the prioritized short list of actions for inclusion in the Climate Resiliency Plan. 3) Anticipate prioritizing actions that contribute to the following high-level strategies: a) Public transportation and land use—solutions that increase density in this sprawled city, develop and incentivize non-car transport, and promote low-emissions travel. b) Moving toward 100% clean and renewable energy through electrification of the building and transportation sectors complemented with a transition to 100% clean and renewable electricity— including both from the grid and from locally produced sources. c) Increased energy conservation and efficiency in both the building and transportation sectors. d) Across all the focus areas, include strategies that bolster the local green economy to sustain living wage green jobs in Port Angeles. 4) Analysis will evaluate the following criteria at minimum a) Impact, including emission reduction potential. b) Feasibility, including degree of City influence over the action, level of community support, required partnerships, regulatory constraints, and technological considerations. c) Cost, including affordability to both the broader community and to City government. d) Equity in the distribution of costs and benefits, including consideration of disadvantaged populations. e) Realization of co-benefits such as public health, quality of life, emergency resiliency, cost savings, and alignment with other City priorities. Task 4.2 Implementation Planning The focus of the Climate Resiliency Plan’s goals and actions are ambitious, yet feasible by setting up implementation pathways that are clearly defined, easy to follow, and have quantifiable metrics to measure success. Cascadia will provide the City a framework for ongoing monitoring and evaluation that includes performance indicators. City of Port Angeles – Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan Climate Resiliency Plan Page 9 Scope of Work City of Port Angeles November 17, 2020 Assumptions: 1) An implementation matrix will at minimum identify the following, based in large part on City staff input: a) Specific departments or local organizations responsible for strategy implementation; b) Anticipated timeline and sequencing of strategies and actions; c) Key partnerships that may be necessary for effective implementation; d) Ties to other City plans, policies, or programs; e) Funding sources if additional funding is required for effective strategy implementation; and f) Immediate next steps for action implementation. Task 4.3 Climate Resiliency Plan Development Building on the Public Outreach and Participation Plan’s efforts, the community and municipal GHG inventory, the strategy assessment and selection, and the implementation planning tasks, Cascadia will develop the Port Angeles Climate Resiliency Plan.
