A nine-member Board, appointed to two-year terms (no term limit), which typically meets on Tuesday before the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month @ 7:30 PM in the Town Hall Board Room; verify meeting schedule with Conservation Board Liaison Lori Stid.
The Conservation Board serves in an advisory capacity, primarily providing recommendations to the Planning Board on whether applications will have a significant environmental impact in accordance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). The Conservation Board also comments to the Town Board and Zoning Board of Appeals on matters pertaining to environmental issues within the Town.
These workshop meetings are open to the public and are conducted in a more informal manner than the public hearing format of the Planning Board, Town Board, and Zoning Board of Appeals.
The Conservation Board meeting is a workshop public meeting; not a public hearing.
