The establishment of the Environmental Commission is to develop comprehensive, integrated environmental policies for implementation by the city to protect and enhance our air, water, land, and public health. It shall help to set goals and policies for the city and community to continuously improve the natural and built environment. The commission will only act as an advisory group, and does not have any regulatory authority. It shall not involve itself in individual site development reviews unless its opinion is requested by the Mayor, City Council, and/or the City Administrator. The City Council also hereby establishes the position of Environmental Sustainability Manager which shall report directly to the City Administrator.
