Does my project proposal need to go before the Conservation Commission?

If your project proposes to disturb a wetland, waterbody, or their buffers, as described in 235-17., you will likely need a wetlands Conditional Use Permit (CUP), and go before the Conservation Commission. If there is any doubt on whether your project will have an impact to a wetland/waterbody/etc., you must hire a Certified Wetlands Scientist (CWS) to review the project and delineate any wetlands.  

 

The Conservation Commission is an advisory board that make comments and recommendations on applications, which are provided to the Planning Board.
