The Environmental Commission has the responsibility to review and comment, where it deems appropriate, on development applications heard by the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment. It is also to maintain an inventory of natural resources in the Township, identifying those of unique environmental interest so they can be recommended for protection. Many of the functions of the commission are also carried out by regional, county and state agencies, including the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
