Environmental commissions use a wide range of information and approaches to inform local government and residents on environmental issues, laws and programs.

The mission of the Clifton Environmental Commission is:

  • Play a coordinating role among the diverse actors in environmental protection:
    • Boards of health and utilities authorities
    • Local planning boards
    • The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP)
    • Soil Conservation Districts
    • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)
  • Promote regional and long-range environmental planning
  • Reach local citizens through educational programs, publications and meetings
  • Work with neighboring commissions and other organizations to address regional and state-wide environmental problems
