Windsor’s Conservation Commission consists of 9 regular members and 3 alternates appointed by the Town Council. The commission meets the last Tuesday of most months and all meetings are open to the public.
The commission is dedicated to preserving Windsor’s open space and conservation areas. The commission through forums and events shares information with the public on land preservation and environmental protection. Several areas such as open space preservation, agricultural land preservation, strategies to balance conservation and development, and environmental protection are major focuses of the commission.
Please feel free to contact us with questions and comments.
Due to the COVID-19 virus, the WCC was unable to realize its full agenda for forums during 2020. We held all of our Commission meetings via Virtually. We continued to be proactive in setting goals and meeting them as feasibly possible, fulfilling agenda items, and educating the public via the Media, WINTV and other outlets on sundry issues such as farmland preservation, open space and Windsor lands, and related information. Some of our efforts include:
- Public Education Forum on February 24, ‘Youth Combating Climate Change’, Panelists: Sunrise Movement Students: Sena Wazer and Mitch Kvard. Also State Representative Bobby Gibson
- Recognition Award: a Tree planted near River Walk in appreciation to John Karas and the Windsor Journal as a news and information source
- Submitted articles on “Keep Windsor Growing-Support Your Local Farms”
- Arranged and confirmed with TAKE 2 event for September 5, E-Cycle 9 am -1 pm Town Hall parking lot
