Environmental Advisory Councils are established at the local level, as provided by state law, to advise municipal governments on issues such as:

  • Identifying environmental problems;
  • Identifying environmentally sensitive areas such as flood-prone areas, swamps, and other unique natural areas;
  • Making recommendations for the most appropriate use of open land;
  • Developing Open Space plans and programs;
  • Recommending and assisting in developing projects to protect the environment; and
  • Promoting community environmental programs.
