Open Space and Recreation Plan Updates
The City of Fitchburg is in the process of updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan, a seven-year plan which sets open space, conservation and recreation goals for the city, and provides an action plan to accomplish those goals. The Community Development and Planning Department is leading this effort. Visit www.fitchburgma.gov/OSRP to participate.
The mission of the Conservation Commission is to administer the Wetland Protection Act, General Laws Chapter 131 section 40, the Erosion and Sedimentation Control ordinance and the local conservation ordinance in such a way as to protect the natural resources of the City of Fitchburg.
The Commission is comprised of 7 volunteer residents. Each volunteer is appointed by the Mayor, subject to City Council approval, and serves a three year term.
