The Chesapeake Environmental Improvement Council (CEIC) was formed in 1983 by then-Mayor Sidney M. Oman. Prior to that, there are records from 1978 indicating that the Council was known as the Litter Control Council under Mayor Marian P. Whitehurst.
The purpose of the CEIC shall be to promote interest in improving the environment of Chesapeake, Virginia thereby making Chesapeake a greener, cleaner and healthier city in which to live, work and visit. The CEIC will accomplish its purpose through outreach, education, and volunteer efforts to include litter and pollution prevention, waste reduction and recycling, beautification, conservation landscaping, and other environmental and conservation issues.
