The Rosendale Environmental Commission is a nine-member commission appointed by the Town Board to advise on matters affecting the health of the environment and the natural resource base of Rosendale.  This includes:

  • Identifying any potential threats to environmental quality and making recommendations for addressing those threats.
  • Identifying sustainable, environmentally-sound land use policies and practices that can be adopted to prevent the emergence of costly environmental problems.

The Environmental Commission also works to raise public awareness about environmental issues of concern to the community and to provide information on the kinds of actions residents can take to address them.  The Commission sponsors informational workshops for residents and businesses on a variety of topics, such as forest management, stormwater management, and energy efficiency.  The Environmental Commission also organizes the annual Earthfest and Expo.

The Commission maintains an up-to-date Natural Resource Inventory of the town, and conducts studies and surveys to promote sound land-use management. (See “Resources” on this page.)

Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Rondout Municipal Center.
