Conservation Commission/Inland Wetlands Agency

Easton’s Conservation Commission/Inland Wetlands Agency acts as the Town’s Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency as well as the Conservation Commission. 

As the Inland Wetlands Agency, it enforces the provisions of the State of Connecticut’s Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Act.  In this capacity, it reviews applications for regulated activities, conducts site visits, and if appropriate, holds public hearings prior to approving or denying a permit.

The Conservation Commission is responsible for maintaining town-owned land designated as “Open Space” and also for planning future open space acquisitions.  To that effect, it works closely with developers and conservation groups, recommending to the Planning and Zoning Commission specific areas to be acquired by the Town or otherwise protected which are in line with the Town’s Open Space Plan adopted in March of 1994.  The Commission also renders comments to Planning and Zoning on certain applications or issues when requested.
