CITIZEN ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION:
The Citizen Environmental Commission is established by Chapter
50 of the DeKalb Municipal Code as an eight member volunteer,
citizen based committee appointed by the Mayor with the
advice and consent of the Council. The mission of the Citizen
Environmental Commission is to promote a heightened awareness of
the natural and built environments in and around DeKalb, and to
help increase the understanding of how those environments affect
the quality of life within our community.
The Citizen Environmental Commission annually honors local
citizens, businesses and other entities with the P.R.I.D.E.
(People Responsible for Improving DeKalb's Environment) Award.
The P.R.I.D.E. Award is recognition for those who have improved
DeKalb's environment by pursuing projects in the areas of
Beautification or Preservation, Education and Public
Information, Energy Conservation, and/or Waste Reduction.
Regular meetings of the Citizen Environmental Commission are
held on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. DeKalb
Municipal Building or at a public place designated in the
notice. Please contact Jennifer Diedrich, Special Projects
Coordinator & Staff Liaison to the Citizen Environmental
Commission at at the contact information above with questions or concerns.
