The Ridgefield Conservation Commission has an opening for an alternate member. The duties of the commission include looking after the town’s open space including trail maintenance, posting and protecting; acting in an advisory capacity to Planning and Zoning and Inland Wetlands on the impact of development on the environment; and adding lands to the Town’s inventory of open space by acquisition and donations.
Applicants will need to be able to attend meetings every other Monday night at 7:30 p.m., and attend occasional Friday morning site walks and Tuesday night P&Z meetings on a rotating basis. Other considerations are time and willingness to help with trail maintenance, land use expertise, natural resource knowledge and an interest in promoting the work of the Commission through education and outreach.
Interested persons should contact the Conservation Commission at 431-2713 or conservation@ridgefieldct.org.
