Sioux Falls' new sustainability plan had several revisions compared to its draft version.

This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.

Sioux Falls' climate change action plan has been a topic of debate for several months now. That debate heated up when SoDak 350, a climate change coalition, sent an open letter to Mayor Paul TenHaken criticizing changes they say limit plan.

The plan was originally created by and founded on work done by the Sustainability Steering Committee. That draft was revised and a new version released recently.

Arlene Brandt-Jenson is SoDak 350's administrative coordinator. She joins In the Moment to discuss the original plan, the revised plan and what her organization would like to see from the mayor's office.
