WEST MILFORD — The West Milford Environmental Commission is seeking residents interested in joining its Sustainable Subcommittee to assist the Environmental Commission and to help the township in retaining its Bronze Status awarded by Sustainable Jersey.

Sustainable Jersey is a state-funded program that certifies a municipality’s efforts in achieving a range of environmentally responsible activities. West Milford achieved Bronze Status in 2011 and 2014, and was awarded a Sustainable Jersey Small Grant for $2,000 in 2014.

According to Stephen J. Sangle, chairperson for the West Milford Environmental Commission, the Sustainable Subcommittee will lead the effort to be re-certified by Sustainable Jersey for another three years.

A list of actions the Sustainable Subcommittee may consider and seek input from residents include: animals in the community, arts and creative culture, brownfields, community partnership and outreach, diversity and equity, energy management, food, green design, health and wellness, innovation and demonstration projects, land use and transportation, local economics, natural resources, operations and maintenance, public information and engagement, sustainability planning and waste management

Anyone interested in shaping policy in these areas under the Sustainable Jersey program should consider joining the Sustainable Subcommittee. Contact Tonya Cubby, secretary to Boards and Commissions, at PlanningBoard@WestMilford.org. Help to influence West Milford’s future and be a part of our environmental mission to keep the township clean and green.
