The Conservation Commission is the citizen board responsible for the management of Town owned conservation lands and for the administration of the Massachusetts Wetlands and Rivers Protection Act. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 7:00 p.m. Sites visits are often conducted prior to the public hearings so that the Commissioners better understand what is being proposed by the applicants, what specific wetland and river resources are in need of protection and how best to provide the protection. On this site you will find helpful resources and current and past meeting materials.
