The Norfolk Environmental Commission (NEC) is a City Council-appointed group of Norfolk volunteer citizens, whose mission is to lead Norfolk residents toward environmental stewardship. The NEC empowers the citizens of Norfolk with a sense of pride and individual environmental stewardship involving land, air, and water quality issues.
In this effort, the Commission monitors and researches current environmental issues, fosters awareness, develops and promotes effective strategies, and encourages communication among city, regional, and state governments and agencies. The Norfolk Environmental Commission meets at 5:30 p.m, on the third Tuesday of each month, at the Ernie Morgan Environmental Action Center, 3500-A Granby Street. Meetings are open to the general public.
The Norfolk Environmental Commission has a new Awards program! Follow the link to the Eco Steward Nomination Form so that you can participate in nominating individuals, groups, or businesses who are taking action to benefit our environment and could use the recognition and a pat on the back. Look for Eco Stewards and get nominating.
