Conservation

The Commission is aided by a Conservation Agent who is experienced in the administration of all applicable wetlands protection laws, wetland on-site review, and land management.  It is the responsibility of the Conservation Agent to obtain and disseminate accurate  information to the Commission to help them make informed and fair decisions for their fellow residents and all who apply for decisions from the Commission.  

The Conservation Office, located on the 2nd floor of Town Hall, is open during regular work hours of the Town Hall.  On-site meetings and property inspections may be scheduled during those hours to meet the needs of applicants who propose projects.

In addition to permitting, the Conservation Commission, along with the Open Space Committee, is responsible for oversight of over 1,000 acres of protected public lands.  Both committees work together to preserve, protect, and maintain these sites for their natural beauty, abundant wildlfe, and enjoyment for all.
