The Environmental Commission is also responsible for maintaining and updating the Environmental Resources Inventory. The most recent update was in 2017 and can be found (along with 10 appendices) in the Environmental Commission folder on the Document Center page.

As the Commissioner of Public Works, Parks and Public Property, Catherine Busch is the liaison for the Environmental Commission.
