Environmental and Shade Tree Committee Established. On April 4, 2012, there was created within the Borough of Beachwood a Committee to be known as “The Environmental and Shade Tree Committee.”

Purpose of Committee. The Environmental and Shade Tree Committee are hereby established for the purpose of recommending the promotion of conservation and the protection and development and/or the use of natural resources including water resources within the Borough. It is further the purpose of the Committee to recommend programs and plans for the consideration of the Borough Council with respect to the purchase, plan and care, rearing; trimming, preserving and control of the shade trees and ornamental trees of the Borough. They shall further consult on a regular basis with the Council liaison to the Public Works Department. They shall encourage arboriculture.

Powers and Duties. The Environmental and Shade Tree Committee shall review the use and possible use of open lands within the Borough and may advertise, prepare and print pamphlets, charts and maps with the pre-approval of the Borough Council. Those pamphlets, charts and maps shall also be applicable to the purchase, planting and care, rearing, trimming, preservation and control of shade trees or ornamental trees within the Borough. The Environmental and Shade Tree Committee shall prepare, keep and index of all open areas, whether publicly or privately owned, including open marsh lands, swamps and other wetlands in order to obtain information on the proper use of these areas. As part of said index they shall also note any and all significant shade trees and ornamental trees located thereon. They shall not, however, enter upon private properties without the express permission of the property owners.

The Committee may recommend to the Borough Land Use Board their input on the inclusion of plants or programs for the Borough’s Master Plan. They also may recommend to said Land Use Board and the Mayor and Council programs for the use of any areas, marsh lands and wetlands within the Borough, as well as any areas containing or conducive to the planting and maintenance of shade trees and ornamental trees, together with recommendation for their care. In the event the Borough acquires any real property, the Environmental and Shade Tree Committee may recommend the use and care of said property in furtherance of the purposes of the Shade Tree and Environmental Committee.

Records and Reports. The Environmental and Shade Tree Committee shall keep records of its meetings and activities and shall make an annual report thereof to the Mayor and Council.
