Responsibilities & Purpose:

Established in 2022, The Environmental Advisory Council assists and advises the Board of Supervisors and the Township Manager on various environmental topics. The EAC collaborates with other Whitpain Township committees as well as local organizations to promote a variety of community environmental programs and provide education that encourages sustainable practices in our community.


The EAC consists of five volunteer members, appointed by the Board of Supervisors: 

Sue Royer, Chair

"I believe that we can all take action to address climate change and I am excited to be working towards a clean renewable energy future within Whitpain Township."

Ruth Chang, Vice Chair        

"Think Globally, Act Locally. Being a part of Whitpain's EAC has me excited to help bring awareness to the many environmental issues faced in our local area.” 

Zbigniew Bieniaszewski 

“Happy to contribute to Whitpain’s journey of sustainability by sharing my experiences and passion with environmental issues.  We can all make a difference in our daily lives to help the environment. The environment is where we all meet; where we all have mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.”

Jennifer Lavenberg 

"Green is a trend and sustainability is a mindset. Let's work together to change our mindset and behavior so that our community can grow healthy and strong"

Paul Driscoll 

"I believe strongly that we need to preserve our natural environment to the greatest extent possible. At the local level, that means leading by example to conserve our land, water, flora and fauna. Let's act now to save what we have for ourselves and for those who come after us."

Ellie Stein (Student Member)

"On the local level, the importance of taking initiative to educate others and create opportunity to take action against environmental issues is crucial. I am excited to learn all I can from the EAC about how the township can work to create a healthier, more sustainable Whitpain!"
