The Carrboro Board of Aldermen appointed three new members to their Environmental Advisory Board Tuesday night.
The EAB is made up of seven volunteers who aim to contribute to environmental policies and development plans. They use this environmental lens to analyze policy within the Carrboro government and focus on maintaining natural spaces.
In their applications, all three of the new members described their willingness to engage in the government process, whether that be through cooperating with others or doing research.
“I think that I became interested in applying because I’m really passionate about local government and knowing and being a part of that movement," said Lyndsay Gavin, one of the new appointees.
Gavin is currently an energy and environment analyst at the Triangle J Council of Governments. She has worked for an oil company in Texas, as well as the California EPA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
