Conservation Commission

The Lyme Conservation Commission manages the Town’s conservation lands, which involves work-trips for trail maintenance and sponsoring hikes, snowshoe walks and educational field trips. The Commission is active in conserving highly-valued open space in town using gifts, donations and revenue from the Land Use Change Tax.

In addition it reviews wetlands permit applications, zoning special exception and variance applications and site plan reviews. Other activities include: assisting the State in monitoring the water quality in Post and Reservoir Ponds, sponsoring Green Up Day the first Saturday in May, and coordinating the work of many volunteers in monitoring Town-held conservation easements.

It meets the first Monday of every month at 7:00 pm at the Lyme Center Academy Building. Meetings are open to the public.
