Conservation Advisory Council

The Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) is constituted under City Code §159-4 and consists of seven residents appointed by the City Council for two-year terms. The City Council designates the CAC Chair from among its members.  

The CAC is an advisory body authorized to conduct studies, surveys, and inventories of the natural and man-made features within the City to create and maintain a Natural Resource Inventory and Open Space Map for the City. The CAC reviews materials and makes recommendations regarding the preservation and development of natural resources in a manner that enhances the value of the natural environment to the City’s residents. The CAC is responsible for determining the consistency of an action within the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program by reviewing the New York State Coastal Assessment Form (f.k.a. Coastal Consistency Form).
