Conservation Commission

Mission

The Conservation Commission of Woodstock, Connecticut was created by town ordinance "...for the purpose of the development, conservation, supervision, and regulation of natural resources, including water resources, within the town of Woodstock. The Conservation Commission is charged with maintaining an inventory of natural resources (forests , farmlands, wetlands, and other open spaces in town); monitoring conservation easements held by the town; formulating watershed and drought management plans; making recommendations to other municipal agencies on proposed land use and other plans for the prioritization, conservation and protection of open space, greenways and other natural resources; and supervising, as well as managing, municipally-owned open space such as forest land.

The Conservation Commission seeks to cooperate with other town organizations, residents and interested parties on town planning and our efforts to maintain and enhance the character of Woodstock.

Meeting Schedule

The full Conservation Commission meets monthly, usually on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. See the blue Calendar tab (above) for upcoming meetings. Special Subcommittee meetings are scheduled as needed. Agendas and minutes are available at the Town Hall and on this website. Meetings are open to the public.
