The Town Board established the commission by local law in 1972. Its duties are to survey and monitor area natural resources and environmental conditions. It makes recommendations to the Town Board regarding conservation and protection of our natural resources and the environment.  The commission works with and advises planning and zoning boards to ensure that development is environmentally sound and planned with the future in mind.


The commission meets the 3rd Thursday of every month @ 7:00 p.m. in the Town Hall Conference Room, Town Hall rear entrance. Commission meetings are open to the public.
