Environment Committee

The Environment Committee works on a broad-range of city-wide and community-related initiatives with an eye towards long-term sustainability of the neighborhood. In addition to making recommendations to the City on municipal policies like trash collection and recycling, the Environment Committee will also focus on high-level neighborhood sustainability initiatives like community solar, watershed stewardship, reducing our collective waste and many other areas of environmental interest the committee chooses to pursue. 

The Environment Committee meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 pm. If you’re interested in joining the Environment Committee or would like to learn more, contact Melissa Michener at melissa[at]hamlinemidway[dot]org
