Conservation Commission


The Norton Conservation Commission is a seven-member board of volunteers to administer and enforce the Wetlands Protection Act (M.G.L. Chapter 131, Section 40) and its Regulations (310 CMR 10.00). The Conservation Commission also manages over 1100 acres of land and waterbodies for open space and preservation purposes. The Conservation Commission typically meets every second and fourth Monday in the Municipal Center at 7:00PM, except for May and October due to Town Meeting and holidays and December due to holidays.

The Town of Norton does not have a wetland protection bylaw but we do have a set of policies, posted with the Town Clerk since 2001. 

When you call the office, please have the property address and the map/parcel information (available from the Assessor's Office) to facilitate answering your question. If you leave a voicemail, PLEASE speak slowly and clearly and leave your name, phone number, property address and the question. We currently do not have a Secretary and it may take a while to get back to you if you don't leave a detailed message. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.
