Conservation Commission

The Conservation Commission is responsible for the preservation of open land and the protection of wetlands through the provisions of State and Federal Wetlands Protection statutes and Carlisle's Non-zoning Wetlands Protection Bylaw.

Its activities include:

  • Holding public hearings under its statutory authority to protect wetlands from illegal filling or pollution and to protect them from increased flooding problems
  • Involvement in the acquisition and management of open lands for passive recreation purposes

The Carlisle Conservation Commission is looking for Carlisle citizens interested in the town’s open spaces to assist with the revision of  Carlisle’s Open Space and Recreation Plan (Plan).  Find more information about this opportunity HERE.
