The Conservation Commission regulates all work that occurs within or adjacent to wetlands areas. Conservation regulations for projects have been promulgated by the state legislature and local town meeting. The Conservation Administrator may be contacted for any questions pertaining to specific projects or Commission jurisdictional issues.

The Conservation Administrator acts as a liaison between the Conservation Commission and the general public. The Commission conducts public hearings for various projects pursuant to the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. The Commission is also responsible for the management of over 1800 acres of Conservation land within the Town. The Conservation Administrator also oversees protection measures for endangered species and critical wildlife habitats. The Conservation Division is located on the lower level of the Town Hall across from the Board of Appeals office. 
For more information, please contact Kelly Grant, Conservation Administrator, at (508) 398-2231 ext. 1288.
