ABOUT THE MILLBURN ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION
Established in 1969, The Millburn Environmental Commission has a distinguished history as one of New Jersey's first municipal environmental commissions. The Commission attracts Township volunteers with a zeal for environmental stewardship and the professional credentials to advance clean water, clean air, recycling and the environment. The Millburn Environmental Commission oversees the identification, preservation and protection of the Township’s environmental resources.
The Commission is comprised of seven members who serve three-year terms, two alternates who serve two-year terms, and a Township Committee liaison, all appointed by the Township Committee. One member of the Commission serves as liaison to the Planning Board, another member represents the Township on the Passaic River Coalition, and another represents the Township on the Rahway River Association.
