Overview


The Westfield Conservation Commission is a seven member board charged with administrating the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (M.G.L. Chpt. 131, 40), and the Westfield Wetlands Protection Ordinance #1109. The commission works to protect and enhance wetlands and wildlife habitat, to maintain natural resources, and to preserve the quality of life for all inhabitants of Westfield. The commission administers the commonwealth’s wetlands regulations by determining wetland boundaries; reviewing and permitting projects proposed in or near wetlands and associated buffer zones; and by placing conditions on development projects that affect wetlands.
