Epping Conservation Commission

Epping Conservation Commission
About us
The Epping Conservation Commission was established in 1967. As described by state law RSA chapter 36A, our purpose is to ensure “the proper utilization and protection of the natural resources" and "the protection of watershed resources” of Epping. More specifically, paraphrasing from the state law, the commission is supposed to:
  • Conduct research into local land and water areas;
  • Seek to coordinate the activities of unofficial bodies organized for similar purposes;
  • Keep an index of all open space and natural, aesthetic or ecological areas within the town, and all marshlands, swamps and all other wetlands in a like manner. Have a plan for obtaining information pertinent to proper utilization of such areas, and recommend to the city council a program for the protection, development or better utilization of all such areas;
  • Keep accurate records of meetings and actions;
  • File an annual report, printed in the annual municipal report.

And we also:

  • May acquire in the name of the town, subject to the approval of the local governing body, the fee in land or water rights, development right, or easements, to protect open space and other land or water areas within the town, and manage and control same;
  • May appropriate money from the conservation fund as deemed necessary for the purposes of this chapter.
The Conservation Commission meets once or twice a month, on the first and third Thursdays, at 7pm, in the Harvey Mitchell Memorial Library next to the Town Hall in Epping.  Our meetings are public, and anyone is welcome to attend.
The Conservation Commission members are:
  • Tracy Archambault
  • John Bennett
  • Amos Clapp
  • Jeff Conrad
