Rochester Conservation Commission looking for associate members

Apr 6, 2018

The Rochester Conservation Commission is looking for volunteers interested in serving as associate members. Associates are non-voting members who help share the workload of the members appointed by the Board of Selectmen. They also provide a pool of future members, and allow more people to participate. Most full voting members formerly served as associate members.

The Conservation Commission was established in Rochester in 1963 and is charged with protecting Rochester’s natural resources. It also advises other town officials and boards on conservation issues that relate to their areas of responsibilities. In 1972, the Conservation Commission was given the responsibility of administering the Wetlands Protection Act.
