As Chair of the Irvine Green Ribbon Environmental Committee, I am happy to announce that the City of Irvine is accepting applications to fill two member-at-large vacancies on the Committee.
Irvine’s Green Ribbon Committee is an official advisory committee and meets four times a year to discuss potential policies and make recommendations to the City Council.
The Green Ribbon Environmental Committee seeks to increase public participation in energy conservation and sustainable practices, helping the City serve the community through advancing environmental policy initiatives and programs.
The Committee is supported by the Public Works Department. Comprised of 10 members, the committee is an advisory body to the City Council and provides advice on sustainability policies related to energy, recycling and waste management, mobility, open space and water issues.
Selection will be based on:
· Professional or civic expertise in an environmental field, including, but not limited to, planning, environmental sciences, health, law, or related field.
· Educational experience in an environmental field, including, but not limited to, planning, ecology, geology, hydrology, or related field.
· Demonstrate concern for, and the desire to improve, the status of natural resources, and environment of the City of Irvine.
The Committee meets quarterly on the third Tuesday of the appropriate month, or as needed, at 4:30 p.m. at Irvine City Hall.
Applications are available at Irvine Civic Center, 1 Civic Center Plaza, 2nd Floor, Community Services Department, or online here.
Completed applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, to:
City of Irvine
