If you’re interested in the conservation issues that face Southborough, keep reading. The town is looking for residents who are interested in filling the Conservation Commission vacancy left by the late Dick Upjohn.
Wondering what exactly the Conservation Commission does? Here’s an excerpt from last year’s town report (PDF):
The Southborough Conservation Commission is the local authority responsible for the protection of Southborough’s natural resources and for the enforcement of the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (M.G.L. Ch. 131, Sect. 40) and regulations (310 CMR 10.00), including the Rivers Protection Act, the Southborough Wetlands Bylaw and Regulations (Chapter 170) and the Stormwater and Erosion Control Bylaw (Chapter 174-13.5). The Commission is a seven-member volunteer board appointed by the Board of Selectmen.
Interested residents should submit a cover letter and resume to the Board of Selectmen, 17 Common Street, Southborough, MA 01772 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
