In the face of population growth, urbanization and technologic change, along with their accompanying demands on natural resources, are of increasing and vital importance. The health, welfare and economic well-being of our present and future inhabitants are at stake. These concerns require forthright action by the governing body of the Incorporated Village of Sea Cliff. It is recognized that the biologic integrity of the natural environment on which man is dependent for survival and the natural and functional beauty of our surroundings which condition the quality of our life experience cannot be protected without the full cooperation and participation of all the people of the Village working in partnership with local and state officials and with various public and private institutions, agencies and organizations. Establishment of a commission for conservation of the environment was a necessary step in fostering unified action on environmental problems.
