Mission

The Conservation Commission consists of a maximum of seven members appointed by the mayor.

The commission administers the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (MGL Ch 131, Sec.40), the Woburn Wetlands Ordinance (Title VII), and the state and local wetlands regulations. It has the authority to regulate activities within wetlands, riverfront (land within 200 feet of a river), and the buffer zone of land that is within 150 feet of a wetland. The commission holds public hearings, conducts site visits, and issues permits.

The Conservation Commission supports the acquisition and preservation of open space, and is concerned with the protection of our natural resources; wetlands in particular. The commission organizes Conservation Day, and runs the Community Gardens Program. The commission has promoted the planting of trees in the city through a tree program.
