Assisted by a full-time Conservation Officer, the Conservation Commission
is a volunteer group of 7 West Springfield citizens specifically charged
with the protection of wetlands and related resource areas. All projects that fall
within the jurisdiction of the Conservation Commission are reviewed by the
Commission to ensure that impact to any resource area is minimized. The
public is encouraged to contact the Commission Officer to determine
whether their project, regardless of size, is subject to the jurisdiction
of the Conservation Commission.
