Beachwood Environmental Commission

About the Beachwood Environmental Commission

Environmental Commissions advise local governments and act as watchdogs for environmental problems and opportunities. They inform elected officials and the public, serve on committees, research issues, develop educational programs and advocate for sound environmental policies.

Environmental commissions work on many issues, including open space preservation, smart growth, wetlands and water resource protection, green infrastructure, recycling and litter, environmental cleanups, wildlife habitat, energy efficiency and conservation and transportation. A growing number of urban environmental commissions are working with local officials to help revitalize their communities.

Municipal environmental commissions, as advisory bodies to local government, can provide the expertise and information needed to address today�s complex environmental issues.

Environmental commissions are the primary local source of information on state environmental laws and programs. They can:

  • Improve local decision-making by integrating environmental policies into local plans and projects;
  • Help local boards understand the environmental consequences of their decisions;
  • Act as a liaison between the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and local boards and councils; and
  • Investigate environmental and natural resource issues for the governing body.

As advocates for the public interest, environmental commissions have an important role in municipal government.
