The Washtenaw County Environmental Council was established by the Board of Commissioners’ Resolution 18-191 on November 28th, 2018.
The impetus for the establishment of the Council came from community concerns and through the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners, driven by the urgency of environmental risks including climate change and threats to our air, land, water, soil, food supply, and natural resources.
- Achieve net-zero emissions for County operations by 2030.
- Protect and improve the County’s air, land, water, food network, and both mental and public health as related to the environment.
- Address and counter environmental and intergenerational injustice. @(Model.BulletStyle == CivicPlus.Entities.Modules.Layout.Enums.BulletStyle.Decimal ? "ol" : "ul")>
