Council on Environmental Quality

The Council on Environmental Quality was established in 1970 by Article I of the Suffolk County Charter otherwise known as the Environmental Bill of Rights.  In 1972 the County established the Suffolk County Historic Trust and appointed the CEQ members as trustees.  The Council’s primary responsibilities include providing advice and assistance to any department, board, commission or agency of Suffolk County government on the implementation of and compliance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act.  In addition, the Council may make recommendations to the County Legislature and County Executive as to what county-owned properties should be dedicated to the county nature preserve or historic trust and what properties not owned by the county should be acquired for purposes of dedication.  The Council also serves an important role examining developments in the County that are likely to have an impact on the quality of the environment.  Under its mandated Charter responsibilities, the Council is advisory to both the County Executive and Legislature.
