Wellesley Natural Resources

More Coming Soon

Read this thoughtful position paper written in the Fall of 2015 by the members of the Natural Resources Commission describing their stand on the proposed Special Act.
"The very existence of the independent Natural Resources Commission is a reflection of that priority. Conservation commissions in other towns are appointed, and they are primarily permitting boards that administer wetlands regulations. Wellesley's independent elected NRC is uniquely charged with a much broader mission of stewardship over conservation land, parks, and natural resources, and includes public education and advocacy."




In this section we will publish commentary from Wellesley residents and stakeholders who are concerned about the impact of the proposed change in town government on both the local town and regional environment.   If you are interested in contributing to these efforts, please go to our "contact us" web page.
