Environmental Quality Committee

About the Committee


Established March 3, 2008 by Resolution 2008-13, the Environmental Quality Committee (or EQC) is a Council-appointed body of residents and businesses who work to involve the community directly in understanding and reducing our impact on the environment.

What does the EQC do?


EQC members are currently working to:
  • Act as ambassadors for citywide environmental quality efforts
  • Review requests for policies pertaining to the environment
  • Develop programs to reduce citywide environmental impacts
  • Educate and involve residents in City environmental programs and activities
  • Involve more members of the community in order to expand the range of areas where the Committee can promote environmental quality
