The Environmental Commission meets on the third Wednesday of the Month at 7:00 pm at the Delaware Township Building.
Agendas and Minutes
In 1968 the State Legislature passed a law establishing Environmental Commissions for the “protection, development, and use of natural resources, including water resources included within the territorial limits of Delaware Township”. In 1972 the law was amended to expand the commissions’ responsibilities to other areas of environmental concern, such as pollution prevention and control, solid waste management, noise control and environmental appearance.
Environmental Commissions are also mandated to develop and maintain a local database of the town’s natural resources, review and comment on governmental actions, promote regional and long-range planning, and inform the public through educational programs, publications, and meetings.
In short, the Environmental Commission’s responsibility is to advise relevant township authorities regarding measures designed to enhance the quality of life of its residents by protecting the quality of their environment.
