City of Long Branch

Environmental Commission

Appointed by the Mayor, the Long Branch Environmental Commission is a group of environmentally mindful Long Branch residents who help implement the green initiatives and goals of the City of Long Branch, the Mayor's Energy Review Committee and the city's Master Plan and Environmental Resource Inventory.  The purpose of the Commission is to increase public awareness regarding environmental issues and events in our community. The Commission sponsors events and campaigns that improve the quality of our environment and make a difference in the health of our community. By partnering with the city, local families, organizations, businesses, and visitors to take important actions, the Environmental Commission intends to make a positive difference in the greening of this wonderful and diverse seaside city.

The Commission meets every month in City Hall (see link for dates).
