Environmental Council

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.

The Environmental Council’s mission is to create a vibrant, sustainable, net-zero Washtenaw County through developing environmental policy and organizational recommendations for Washtenaw County government, in order to:
  • Achieve net-zero emissions for County operations by 2035.
  • 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.
Agendas are available prior to the meetings.  Minutes are available following approval.
