Conservation Advisory Council – Per NYS General Municipal Law, each municipality is sanctioned to create a Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) to advise local government on environmental matters and review development proposals with potential environmental impact in an advisory capacity. Since 2009, the Kingston CAC has worked as a volunteer board to ensure the conservation of the City’s natural resources and the enhancement and protection of its environment, while fostering unified actions on environmental matters. The Kingston CAC meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in Kingston City Hall Conference Room 1. The meetings are open to the public. For more information, visit the Kingston CAC webpage.
