The purpose of the Sustainability Commission is to create an informational clearinghouse and an open compendium of sustainability best practices.
Duties include identifying and articulating sustainability goals, objectives and voluntary targets for county government and industrial, commercial, residential and recreational sectors county-wide.
The commission provides expertise, resources and promotes awareness in the area of sustainability. The work shall be advisory. Any citizen or business participation in any commission program or initiatives is strictly voluntary.
Regular meetings of the commission shall be held a minimum of six times a year or more frequently as requested by a majority of the members or by the chair.
For 2018, the Sustainability Commission meets on the second Wednesday monthly from 4:00pm - 5:30pm at the Jefferson County Courts and Administration building. Open meetings notices are posted outside of Hearing Room 1.
The commission shall be composed of nine members. Each member shall be appointed to a three-year term. Terms are staggered. Members shall be chosen based on an area of expertise within sustainability.
