Conservation Commission: (603) 887-3719
Charles Myette, Chairman
The Chester Conservation Commission is a seven-member, all-volunteer board appointed by the Selectmen under the provisions of state RSA 36-A: 2, which allows municipalities in New Hampshire to establish commissions “for the proper utilization and protection of the natural resources and for the protection of watershed resources.” This work includes preparing maps or plans, “keeping an index of open space and natural, aesthetic, or ecological areas” within the town in order to obtain information “pertinent to proper utilization of all such areas.” The Commission acts as an advisory board to other town and state boards and agencies involved in land use planning and works to natural resources in Chester.
