RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The town of Ridgefield is looking for volunteers to serve on a variety of board and committees, including the Conservation Commission, which has an opening for a new member.
The Ridgefield Conservation Commission is responsible for ensuring the sound development, conservation, supervision and regulations of the town's natural resources, including its water resources, and preserving, maintaining, and enhancing town's open spaces.
Specific tasks of the commission include: maintaining posting, and protecting open space trails; acting in an advisory capacity to the Planning and Zoning Board and the Inland Wetlands Board on the impact of development on the environment; adding land to the town’s inventory of open space by acquisition; and encouraging donations.
Applicants must be able to attend meetings every other Monday at 7:30 p.m. as well as occasional Friday morning site walks and Tuesday night Planning and Zoning 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 commission's work through education and outreach.
Interested people should contact the Conservation Commission by calling 203-431-2713 or emailing email@example.com .
