Welcome to the City of Long Branch's "Green Page", an exciting and innovative section of the City's website. This section announces our Go-Green City-Wide Initiative and informs the community of various ways we can all get involved. This initiative is vital to ensuring the preservation of our current standard of living. Simply put, the choices and behaviors we choose today will effect future generations and have a direct impact on an evermore interconnected planet. This will take an all-hands effort.
With this initiative in mind, Mayor Schneider created the Energy Review Committee composed of representatives from many different departments including the planning, health, public works, and police departments. The committee works hard for the community to provide new environmentally friendly initiatives to help make the quality of life better in our city and looks at improving efficiency in city buildings, reusing resources, planning new environmentally efficient structures, and encouraging our residents to become more environmentally friendly.

"Working For a Green Future", the City's motto, is an on going effort and takes commitments from community members too. To help in this process, Mayor Schneider appointed residents as members of the Long Branch Environmental Commission (LBEC) and was encouraged by the interest for Green Team Volunteers. With that, City Council appointed members to our “Green Committee” (see article below) in January 2011 that will also fulfill one of the requirements for Sustainable Jersey certification.
