The Environmental Commission is one of the City’s roughly 60 boards and commissions. Formed in 2021, the Commission is comprised of 15 voting members, plus 8 technical panel members who have expertise in one area of the CECAP. These areas include buildings, energy, transportation, zero waste, water resources, ecosystems, food access, and air quality. The Commission also has five subcommittees: Environmental Justice, Outreach & Engagement, Implementation, and Strategic Partnerships & Innovation.


Each member serves in a volunteer capacity for a term of two years. Members have experience in environmental or community advocacy, public health, environmental science, and/or sustainability.
