The Tompkins County Environmental Management Council (EMC) has been the Legislature's official citizen advisory board on local environmental issues since 1971.
Information on the EMC's Unique Natural Area (UNA) Inventory Update is available here.
EMC membership consists of citizens with a variety of interests and backgrounds. The common bond is a commitment to the environment.
The purpose of the EMC is to identify problems, propose priorities, and promote coordination of activities in the development and management of our natural resources and to provide a public forum for the discussion and resolution of these problems and completion of proposed projects.
The Tompkins County Planning and Sustainability Department provides financial assistance and staff support to the EMC.
Next EMC Meeting:
Regular EMC meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month, 4 PM, at the Old Jail Conference Room (125 East Court Street, downtown Ithaca). All are welcome.
