Email: htec@hopewelltwp.org

The Hopewell Township Environmental Commission was established in 1974. The Environmental Commission has the power to conduct research into the uses of open land areas of the township and may coordinate the activities of official bodies organized for similar purposes. It is charged with keeping an index of all open areas, publicly or privately owned, including open marsh lands, swamps and other wetlands, in order to obtain information on the proper use of such areas. It may recommend to the planning board of the township, plans and programs for inclusion in a municipal master plan and also make recommendations about the development and use of such areas. The Environmental Commission may also, with the approval of the Township Committee acquire property on behalf of the
Township.

The Commission consists of seven members who are appointed by the Mayor for three year terms. The Mayor designates one of the members as Chair.
