Remote Participation

The Conservation Commission has adopted a policy allowing for remote participation, as allowed under state law. A copy of that policy is available here.

At this time, due to the urgent issue of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the declarations of a public health emergency by both the US and Maine departments of Health & Human Services, that remote participation policy is in force and the Conservation Commission is conducting all its meetings fully remotely. Please contact the Planning & Code Enforcement office at (207) 288-3329 if you have questions about this.
