The Montgomery Conservation Committee’s mission is to serve as the conservation conscience of the Town, providing leadership for natural resources planning. The Commission works to protect, and where possible enhance plant and wildlife habitat to maintain Montgomery’s natural resources.
The Conservation Committee members are annually appointed by the Select Board.
The Commission, governed by the Open Meeting law, meets as needed. The Conservation Committee, together with the Mass DEP, reviews applications for work to be undertaken in or near a wetland or resource area. The Commission is entrusted with the application of the Wetland Protection Act, the Rivers Protection Act, CMR Wetlands Regulations, Storm Water Management Policy, and Local Wetlands Bylaws.
