Mission

To provide leadership and vision in support of all Township activities involving protecting, using and restoring natural resources and open space located within the Township.

Overview

The Livingston Environmental Commission (LEC) in Livingston, NJ was established by ordinance in 1973. It consists of seven members, one of whom shall also be member of the Planning Board, and two alternates all of whom must be Township residents and are appointed by the Mayor. The members study and make recommendations to the Township Council on issues relating to protecting, developing or using the natural resources — including water resources and open space — located within the Township. The LEC reviews the potential environmental impacts of applications heard before the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment.
