Conservation Commission

The Conservation Commission is the town board responsible for ensuring local compliance with the State Wetlands Protection Act. Under that law, anyone proposing to work in or near wetlands (including lakes, ponds and streams and their bordering vegetated wetlands, as well as the riverfront area) must file plans with the Commission.

Information and forms for filing a work plan (NOI, or Notice of Intent) are available for download on the MassDEP website.
