a. Recommendations for new actions the Town can pursue to reduce nonrenewable energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from residential and commercial buildings in Carrboro 
b. Recommendations for new actions the Town can pursue to reduce nonrenewable energy use associated with transportation in Carrboro 
c. Recommendations for new actions the Town can pursue to promote renewable energy in Carrboro 
d. Recommendations for new actions the Town can pursue to better manage vegetation, soil, and impervious surfaces to capture carbon, reduce energy use in buildings, mitigate the heat island effect, and reduce stormwater runoff .
