Fair Lawn Environmental Commission Seeks New Members

The Fair Lawn Environmental Commission was established for the protection, development or use of natural resources, including water resources, located within the territorial limits of the Borough.  All members are appointed by the Mayor and Council and volunteer and serve without compensation.  

The Commission conducts research into the use and possible use of the open land areas of the municipality and may coordinate the activities of unofficial bodies organized for similar purposes and may advertise, prepare, print and distribute books, news releases, maps, charts, plans and pamphlets which, in its judgment, it deems necessary for its purposes, as budgetary allowances permit.  It shall keep an index of all open areas, publicly or privately owned, including wet or marshlands, in order to obtain information on the proper use of such areas and may, from time to time, recommend to the Planning Board plans and programs for inclusion in the Municipal Master Plan and the development and use of such areas.

The Commission studies and makes recommendations concerning open space preservation, water resources, management, air pollution control, solid waste management, noise control, soil and landscape protection and environmental appearance.
