The Sustainability Commission is established to optimize Deerfield's potential in environmentally sound practices, thereby improving the quality of our local environment for the benefit of our citizens, businesses and neighbors with respect to sustainability, meaning the use of resources such that they do not become depleted or permanently damaged and requiring the balance of environmental, economic and social demands.
The Sustainability Commission consists of twelve (12) voting members who act in an advisory capacity to the President and Board of Trustees, to the Village administration and to the Deerfield community. All members are appointed for a term of three (3) years. The commission meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in Village Hall. Agendas are posted on the Village's website at least 48 hours prior to each meeting.
The Sustainability Commission also created a "Green up Deerfield" section of the Village's website which can be found by clicking here.
