Welcome to the Conservation Commission!

Overview

The Conservation Commission is responsible for overseeing the protection of wetlands, riverbanks, and wildlife as defined by the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and City Wetlands Ordinance (Ch. 280, Sec. 1-13). Projects either directly in a resource area (ex. floodplain) or within a certain distance of a resource area (ex. within 100 feet of wetlands) can be subject to Commission review. The level of review from the Commission generally varies upon the size and scale of the proposed project, as well as the affected resource area.  Member details are available here at the City's new online Agenda and Meetings tool. Also, please feel free to review rules and regulations of the Conservation Commission, along with the relevant statutes and ordinances here.

Meetings

The Conservation Commission meets on the second (2nd) and fourth (4th) Wednesday of each month in City Hall's City Council Chambers at 7:00pm. Notice of meetings is posted at least two days in advance of the meeting on the bulletin board outside of City Hall in the JFK Plaza, and on the City of Lowell's online Event Calendar.
