The Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) members work actively with the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors as stewards of the environment in alignment with the Township's goals. The EAC is to identify environmental problems and recommend plans and programs to the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, and other committees of the Township for the promotion and conservation of the natural resources and for the protection and improvement of the quality of the environment within the Township. The EAC is to make recommendations as to the possible use of open land areas of the Township and promote a community environmental program.
The primary purpose of this Council is to help local government and residents focus on preserving and guiding the use of our Township’s natural and cultural resources as we grow. This means protecting every natural, cultural, and visible resource we can, while accepting responsible cost-effective development.
