Recognizing the beneficial environmental impacts the Township can have through stewardship, capital improvements and regulation, the Environmental Advisory Council will, with the assistance and input of Township staff and oversight from the Board, make concrete proposals to the Board that can be implemented through the Township’s areas of influence. The Environmental Advisory Council has categorized these into six broad initiatives:

  • Green Building Practices
  • Education
  • Energy Conservation
  • Land Use
  • Recycling
  • Storm Water
  • Miscellaneous Environmental Initiatives
