The Conservation Commission is responsible for the preservation of open land and the protection of wetlands through the provisions of the State and Federal Wetlands Protection statutes.
Their activities include:
- Holding public hearings under its statutory authority to protect wetlands from illegal filling or pollution and to protect them from increased flooding problems.
- Involvement in the acquisition and management of open lands for passive recreation purposes.
