Environmental Commission

About the Commission 

The City of Jackson Environmental Commission is tasked with helping to create a cleaner, greener future in Jackson.

The Jackson City Council voted to create the 12 member board in February 2018. It consists of five city residents who are nominated by the mayor and confirmed by the city council. The rest of the commission is made up of seven ex-officio members who are also approved by the city council after recommendations by the city manager and mayor. 

The Environmental Commission will develop comprehensive environmental policies for the City to protect and enhance its air, water and land quality. As an advisory body, the commission cannot enact policy, but will advise and make recommendations to the city council for review.

Environmental Action Plan 

An Environmental Action Plan is prepared annually by the commission. A revised version was formally accepted by the Jackson City Council on Feb. 16, 2022. The action plan is available on this page for review.
