About the Commission


The primary function of the Conservation Commission is to preserve and protect the local wetland resource areas, as defined in the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. Since colonial times, Massachusetts has lost nearly 1/3 of its wetlands. The loss of wetlands means the loss of important benefits they provide. This includes the protection of water quality and water supplies, storm water and flood damage prevention, and the protection of wildlife and plant habitat.

The Conservation Commission is composed of appointed town officials who serve as unpaid volunteers. When necessary, meetings may be scheduled on alternate dates. Contact the Conservation Commission office with questions regarding meeting schedules.

Goal
