The Environmental Awareness Committee serves to educate residents on environmental issues and advise on how to be more environmentally friendly. The EAC has addressed issues such as recycling, storm water, and water and energy efficiency, and promotes these topics through events such as Green on the Green Day. Efforts to promote City recycling include distributing recycling bins, speaking to school students, and coordinating the "Get Caught Green Handed" team. Efforts to educate residents on storm water include a rain garden at Barlow Community Center, rain barrel art program and rain barrel workshop. The Committee also seeks grants, including the Summit Akron Solid Waste Management Authority’s recycling grant and a rain garden grant from Tinker’s Creek Watershed partners. Seven members serve three, four-year terms.
“A standing community volunteer board approved by City Council whose purpose is to provide ideas, suggestions, and make recommendations to the city regarding environmental initiatives. The goal of this committee is to increase awareness of the human impact in the environment in order to encourage conservation of natural resources.”
