Town of Monroe Conservation Commission

The Town of Monroe Conservation Commission was formed in November 1990 by direction of the Town Board.  The Commission is empowered to advise the Town Board and Planning Board on matters affecting the preservation, development and use of the natural and man-made features and conditions within the Town of Monroe.  The Town's legislative intent specifies that, “the Commission, works to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of the environment for the people of the Town of Monroe – now and for the future.” 

The Conservation Commission conducts information programs and activities that are designed to increase public awareness and understanding of environmental issues and their relationship to the Town's present and future well-being.  The Commission is also charged with conducting and maintaining an inventory of natural resources and open spaces within the municipality.  Commission members also attend Town and Planning Board meetings to stay informed of new commercial and residential applications for development.  Some examples of programs initiated through the Commission include introduction of Chinese carp into Walton Lake for aquatic weed control; select cleanup efforts of local lakes and watersheds; educational brochures and bookmarks explaining conservation best practices; and, promotion of conservation easements in large tract development applications. 

The Commission is comprised of volunteer members that are each appointed to a two (2) year term by the Town Board.
