This committee addresses such matters as SEQRA, zoning and planning, federal clean air/clean water acts, and RLUIPA. The Committee also examines ways municipalities can encourage, through legislation or incentives, sustainable design of structures, increased energy efficiency and reduced impact on scarce resource resources.
Mission Statement: The committee aims to assist municipalities, developers and other land use professionals with planning, zoning and additional land use and environmental issues, including addressing new legislation and case law, with the goal of reducing the use of natural resources and energy, limiting environmental damage, and adopting programs and regulations that promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, water use efficiency, and waste reduction by residents and businesses.
