The Conservation Commission, comprised of a seven-member
volunteer board, was founded in 1966 "for the promotion and
development of natural resources and for the protection of
watershed resources." Today, the Conservation Commission
administers the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and
the associated Burlington Bylaws. Additionally, the
Conservation Commission manages permanently protected
open space, called Conservation Areas.
