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 resources 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 Commission maintains an up-to-date Natural Resource Inventory (NRI) of the town, and conducts studies and surveys to promote sound land-use management. A display of NRI maps is located in the Rondout Municipal Center and the full report is available online (see “Resources” on this page).

Due to Covid-19, all meetings will be virtual.
