Our Mission Statement

The Environmental Commission is established by Chapter 15 of the Avon by the Sea Municipal Code and was created by Ordinance in December, 1992.  Its stated purpose is “for the protection, development or use of natural resources, including water resources, located within the territorial limits of the municipality of Avon by the Sea”.  The Environmental Commission is a group of volunteers, appointed by the Borough Board of Commissioners, to help conserve the community’s environment. Working with Borough officials, community organizations and residents, the Environmental Commission seeks to promote programs that conserve resources, foster a better understanding of our environment, and stimulate interest in protecting the environment.

The Commission may conduct research, prepare, and communicate information in support of its purpose.  It shall keep an index of all open areas, both public and private, in order to obtain information on the proper use of such areas.  It may recommend to the Planning Board plans and programs for inclusion in the Master Plan.  The Commission will also undertake the additional activities delineated in Chapter 15 of the Municipal Code.  Meetings are held the third Tuesday of the month at the Municipal Building.
