Tompkins County Environmental Management Council

The Tompkins County Environmental Management Council (EMC) has been the Legislature's official citizen advisory board on local environmental issues since 1971.

EMC membership consists of citizens with a variety of interests and backgrounds. The common bond is a commitment to the environment.

The purpose of the EMC is to identify problems, propose priorities, and promote coordination of activities in the development and management of our natural resources and to provide a public forum for the discussion and resolution of these problems and completion of proposed projects.
