The Task Force has nine members including four appointed by the Mayor, four by City Council, and one by the Environment Council of Rhode Island. The Task Force responsibilities are defined by city ordinance as follows:
- Work with the Office of Sustainability, the Mayor, the City Council and other city departments to coordinate the City’s environmental agenda and provide a level of accountability for the environmental initiatives the City is currently implementing or planning to implement.
- Communicate with the public important developments in the City’s environmental agenda. This will bring an extra level of transparency and accessibility to the City’s progress on important environmental goals.
- Include experts from the City and from the community to discuss and propose innovative, yet achievable, environmental initiatives which the City could adopt to further green the City of Providence.
