WESTMINSTER CONSERVATION COMMISSION
Any alteration of the ground, such as digging, stumping or filling, within 100' of a resource area [water body, stream or wetland] requires that the Conservation Commission be notified about the proposed work. The commission or agent will then determine if the work comes under the jurisdiction of the state Wetlands Protection Act or local Wetlands Bylaw. If so, a Notice of Intent [NOI] may be required. This does not necessarily prohibit the proposed work, it only is meant to ensure that measures are taken to prevent erosion or damage to resource areas.
Conservation Agent Bob Maki is available in Town Hall, Rm. 225, Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday from 7 - 11 a.m. as well as Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 - 4:30. Call 978-874-7413.
The Commission is a 7-member board charged with the administration and enforcement of the Wetlands Protection Act and local wetlands bylaw. Meetings are held once or twice a month on Wednesday evenings. Contact Chairman Dan Bartkus through the Conservation Office at 978-874-7413 for further information.
