About

The Environmental Advisory Council was created in December by Ordinance 445-20 to assist and advise the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, Parks and Recreation Board and other Township Authorities, Boards and Commissions, on matters dealing with protection, conservation, management, promotion, and uses of natural resources, located within the Township. Council members are Township residents, appointed by the Board of Supervisors.  Among its tasks, the Environmental Advisory Council identifies environmental concerns, promotes conservation and protection of natural resources and the quality of the environment within the Township, develops a community environmental program, creates and maintains an index of open areas within the Township and undertakes such environmental tasks as requested by the Board of Supervisors.
