It will make use of materials from the Environmental Protect Agency and the Sustainable Columbus group for web pages, webinars, newsletters, educational collateral and social media channels.

The communications partner will “maintain a responsive resident interaction process and share information transparently with residents throughout the climate action plan design and implementation process.”

The budget for the four-year effort is set at $170K.

Proposals are due Dec. 1 at the Bonfire electronic portal.
