They do not speak, testify or act in any way on issues under discussion. Observers share observations and identify issues meriting League attention.

Topics are local, regional, national: Zoning changes in Dobbs Ferry, Expansion of the Algonquin Pipeline, Tappan Zee Bridge reconstruction, Indian Point’s failure to finalize a plan for disposal of nuclear waste, hydrofracking, hydrocarbon transport, aging gas pipelines, and more.
