Citizens' Commission on the Environment

Citizens Commission on the Environment

The Fulton County Commission on the Environment, or FCCCE, is a citizen advisory group appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The purpose of the FCCCE is to investigate environmental concerns; to make recommendations to the Fulton County Board of Commissioners on environmental policies, and to increase public awareness and understanding about environmental issues.


One of the ways in which the FCCCE engages the community is to present annual awards to individuals, organizations, and companies that have improved the environment in Fulton County. The FCCCE seeks nominations each year for projects, programs, organizations, and individuals to be recognized at an annual Environmental Awards Ceremony.
