The City of Fresno has identified themselves as the Lead Applicant for the Fresno Transformative Climate Communities Collaborative proposal to the California Strategic Growth Council for $70 million in funding. A public agency is a required applicant for funds, and applicants must have experience overseeing and managing large infrastructure projects, including both financial and management capacity. Given these constraints, and the desire for strong and diverse community support and participation, the City facilitated a participatory and open project proposal process to both propose and select projects to be included in their proposal to the state, and delegated authority to a Community Steering Committee comprised of residents, workers, and property owners in southwest, Chinatown, and Downtown Fresno.
The Community Steering Committee has chosen a final package of projects!
After much deliberation and discussion, the Community Steering Committee chose a final package of projects to send to the Mayor for the $70 million grant from the Strategic Growth Council to the City. The final package of projects was based on a fifth alternative created by 16 residents of West Fresno, who then sought and gained support from Chinatown and Downtown Fresno leaders. The details of the fifth and final package are listed below.
More information about the policy components of the Fresno Transformative Climate Communities Proposal will be found here.

The TCC Process Team has carefully analyzed all of the selections from each of the 17 small groups that convened at Community Steering Committee Meeting #4 on September 27 in developing the four draft alternative packages for the CSC’s consideration and vote on Wednesday, October 4th.
