Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM in Shelburne Town Hall unless otherwise posted.

Who we are

The Conservation Commission is an appointed body consisting of five members whose purpose is to protect and preserve the natural resources of the town and to enforce the protection of wetlands.

What we do

A major aspect of the Commission’s work is reviewing, approving and controlling the conditions under which work may be done which affects a river, stream or wetland in Shelburne. Anyone seeking to do work within 100 feet of a wetland, 200 feet of a river or stream, or any area that may cause additional runoff into a wetland , river, or stream must obtain prior approval of the Commission. In order to get that approval, individuals must file documents, providing complete information on the site and the proposed work, by filling out a Request for Determination form or a Notice of Intent.
