Per state statute and town charter, the Conservation Commission makes recommendations to the Board of Selectmen about the preservation, development and conservation of natural resources, including water resources, within the town of Woodbridge.
The Woodbridge Conservation Commission is guided by the town's Plan of Conservation and Development (PDF) and Open Space Plan (PDF), and a belief that human activity must be in harmony with the elements of nature: air, water, land and other natural resources. We need to protect and actively manage our natural resources. It is our belief that open space helps to preserve the livability of our community. It is imperative that any development be balanced with the creation of open space.
Our focus is to preserve the character our town, the small town atmosphere, to plan for its physical landscape, to protect the water, wildlife, vegetation, environment and quality of life for our citizens. We must be vigilant so that we can ensure, for future generations, the existence of undeveloped spaces that will provide recreation and leisure-time activities for all residents.
