COMMISSION PROFILE
This environmental organization is composed of a diverse group of volunteers who contribute their time and energy to work as a team to continuously monitor and improve the quality of life for all species and the quality of resources by providing ideas and information that advocate the communities vision for Calabasas, Los Angeles County and the State of California.

The commission advocates sound environmental policy and action in the areas of air quality, land use, water quality, waste management, flora and fauna and resources (water & energy). This commission meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month based on an agenda prepared in advance, focused discussion, teamwork and where possible, the use of total quality management concepts.

The commission provides assistance to the Planning Department and City Council by reviewing and commenting on City ordinances and state mandates and identifies important environmental goals for the City and estimates resources needed to accomplish these goals.
