About BCEC


Who We Are and What We Do:

The Bordentown City Environmental Commission (BCEC) is comprised of volunteers who are residents of Bordentown City and are appointed by the Mayor. The BCEC advises local officials and the Planning Board regarding environmental issues and acts as a watchdog for environmental problems and opportunities. We inform elected officials and the public, serve on committees, research issues, develop educational programs, and advocate for sound environmental policies. The BCEC also is able to form subcommittees run by non-appointed volunteers to pursue issues of local importance. Presently, one committee, the Green Team, runs a Green Fair, organizes the City’s weekly Farmers’ Market, and facilitates the City’s participation in the Sustainable Jersey program. Local issues include preservation of open space, promoting walking and bicycling trails and the RiverLINE, protection of wetlands and water quality, recycling and energy conservation, and environmental education.
