The Princeton Environmental Commission (PEC) consists of volunteer Princeton residents appointed by the Council; the Chair is appointed by the Mayor. The Commission advises the Mayor, the Council, the town administration, and local officials, including the Planning and Zoning Boards and about environmental issues and actions that may affect the natural resources and inhabitants of the community. The PEC was established to advocate for the protection, development and use of natural resources, including water resources, located within Princeton. The PEC reviews studies, funds research and makes recommendations concerning open space preservation, water resources and storm water management, air pollution control, sustainable building design and practices, alternative transportation, recycling, composting, solid waste management, noise control, soil and landscape protection, environmental appearance, aquatic resources and protection of flora and fauna.
