The purpose of the committee is to address environmental concerns, promote a safe and healthy environment, and maintain the natural beauty of the environment within the City. To research and recommend climate mitigation strategies that the community can implement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the negative consequences of climate change, and to promote and recommend policies that encourage energy efficiency efforts and increase the clean energy supply throughout the community.

The Committee shall make recommendations to other city committees and to the City Council on matters concerning the environment.  The Committee may coordinate all City efforts to obtain and maintain an annual community wildlife habitat designation through the National Wildlife Federation subject to City Council approval.
