The Environmental Advisory Board shall fulfill the Town’s requirements under its NPDES Phase II stormwater permit for citizens input on stormwater management activities.  Citizens with an interest in serving on the EAB are not required to have extensive background in stormwater management, but should have an interest in providing this support.

(1) Advise the Board of Alderman on policies, ordinances, and administrative procedures regarding environmental protection and the conservation of natural resources. The areas of review for the EAB include new development, solid waste, air quality, stormwater management, climate protection and resilience, energy conservation, solar energy,
groundwater, natural resources, and other areas.
 
(2) Provide recommendations for green building and low impact development as part of new  development and redevelopment, including site planning and design, energy efficiency and renewable energy, water efficiency, materials efficiency and waste reduction, indoor environmental quality, and the minimization of pollution and stormwater runoff.
 
(3) Adopt a set of guiding principles or goals for the EAB and review these goals periodically to determine if they are being obtained.
 
(4) Take any other action authorized by the Land Use Ordinance or any other ordinance or resolution of the Board of Alderman.
