The Amherst Conservation Commission was established in 1968 under Chapter 36-A of the New Hampshire revised statutes for the proper utilization and protection of the natural resources and for the protection of watershed resources in town.
In January 2000, Antioch New England Graduate School presented a report to the Town of Amherst, the State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, and Pennichuck Water Works entitled “Amherst Wetland Assessment and Prime Wetland Designation Project.” This report was funded in part by a Local Initiative Grant of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Water Protection Program, as authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency pursuant to Section 320 of the Clean Water Act. Remaining funds were provided by the Town of Amherst Conservation Commission and the Pennichuck Water Works Corporation. The records of the background for the study can be found here.
The Conservation Commission typically meets the second Sunday of the month at 7:00 in Town Hall. Please see the 2013 Meeting Schedule for specific dates.
Seven voting members may be appointed to the Conservation Commission by the selectmen ( Section 36-A:3 ). Alternate members are appointed to vote in the absences of regular members and they may perform any other duties of the commission. Current members of the Conservation Commission are listed below.
