Environmental Commission

The Environmental Commission has been woven in to the governance of the Township of Springfield since the 1970s.  According to Chapter II of the Revised General Ordinances, “the Environmental Commission is established for the protection, development or use of natural resources, including water resources, located within the territorial limits of the Township. It shall have power to conduct research into the use and possible use of the open land areas of the Township and may coordinate the activities of unofficial bodies organized for similar purposes, and may advertise, prepare, print and distribute books, maps, charts, plans and pamphlets which in its judgment it deems necessary for its purposes. It shall keep an index of all open areas, publicly or privately owned, including open marshlands, swamps and other wetlands, in order to obtain information on the proper use of such areas, and may recommend to the Planning Board plans and programs for inclusion in the Master Plan and the development and use of such areas.”

The Environmental Commission meets once a month, usually the third Monday of the month. However, the meeting schedule may vary due to Township’s holidays and other conflicts. All meetings are open to the public and are held at the Chisholm Community Center, 100 South Springfield Avenue, Springfield, NJ, beginning at 7:00 P.M.
