The Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee will be available as a resource to staff, providing input on matters being pursued to achieve Council’s strategic priorities. Above all, the Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee is responsible for ensuring that its business aligns with, and serves to complement, City Council’s strategic priorities.


The Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee’s membership shall include a total maximum membership between 9-11. As much as practicable, the membership should reflect the City’s diverse population. The membership shall also include one (1) Member of Council in a liaison capacity.
