The mission of the Summit Environmental Commission (EC) is to provide leadership and vision in advising the City of Summit on actions and policies of sustainability including preservation and enhancement of the quality of Summit's environment and natural resources, as well as the health, well - being and quality of life of its residents and businesses.

City Planning

The EC strives to engage all segments of the community and actively participates in the city planning process, researches and reports on environmental topics; develops educational outreach activities and materials; responds to inquiries from businesses and residents; coordinates with municipal planning and zoning boards, committees and other organizations on issues of mutual interest, and works with neighboring communities on environmental issues of regional importance.
