Conservation Commission Meeting Schedule 2024

The Hamilton Conservation Commission is responsible for protecting the town of Hamilton’s wetlands resources. It does this by working with residents to comply with the state Conservation Commission Act, state Wetlands Protection Actand the Town of Hamilton non-zoning Conservation Bylaw, which contains additional requirements deemed necessary by town residents to protect our local wetland values.

The Commission reviews activities proposed within 100 ft of any wetland, marsh, swamp or bank, that borders any waterway or waterbody, land under those waters, or lands that flood; and activities within 200 ft from larger watercourses. This review process is utilized to contribute to the following interests: protect public, private, and groundwater supply, control floods, prevent storm damage, prevent pollution, and protect fisheries, shellfish, and wildlife habitat.

The Commission consists of up to 7 volunteers: each serving a 3-year renewable term, and a Conservation Agent.  It serves as a resource to residents on wetlands issues, including through consultations with the agent, site visits, educational events, and informational resources. There are twice monthly public meetings and hearings.
