Inland Wetlands & Watercourses Commission
What We Do
As a regulatory agency, the commission evaluates the wetlands in Town and acts on any permit requests affecting designated wetlands. Public hearings are conducted on those proposals deemed to be "significant activities". The commission conducts a field investigation of all properties in question for the purpose of a first-hand observation of the existing wetland or watercourse.
