Members of the Environmental Advisory Committee advise the City Council in the development of policies and programs that address issues of environmental concern, such as climate change, energy efficiency, and conservation. Meetings are held on an as-needed basis, or at the discretion of the Committee Chair.
Upon recommendation of the Mayor and appointment by the Council, the Environmental Advisory Committee is a nine-member board, which includes representatives from City Council, Planning Commission and Park & Activities Commission as well as six at-large residents. All Committee Members serve as volunteers. In all cases, the Committee's actions are subject to review and final approval by the City Council. Committee members serve a one-year term.
Each year, the City Council reviews the Committee make-up and may appoint new Committee members if a vacancy exists. For questions regarding the appointment process or to submit an application, please contact Lauren Pettit, City Clerk at (310) 377-1577, ext. 102 or by e-mail at LaurenP@RollingHillsEstatesCA.gov
