The Planning, Conservation and Development Department is seeking volunteers for two committees.

The Planning, Conservation and Development Department is seeking citizen volunteers to fill vacancies on two advisory panels. There are currently four vacancies on the Conservation Commission and five vacancies on the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission.

The Conservation Commission is an advisory panel to the Common Council on open space acquisition and management, and meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission grants, denies, or limits activities within and proximal to inland wetland resources within the City and meets the first Wednesday of each month at City Hall at 7 p.m.
