Overview

The Natural Resources Commission (NRC) is a 5-member board appointed by the Town Manager, with the approval of the Select Board, for 3-year, staggered terms. The NRC is responsible for the overall stewardship of the natural resources of the Town, and the establishment of Town environmental policy in conjunction with the Select Board and Town Meeting. The Natural Resources Commission acts as Conservation Commission in all matters delegated by Massachusetts General Law or Town bylaw.
