Join the Conservation Commission
Town of Holliston
Notice of Volunteer Position Opening: Conservation Commission Alternate
The Holliston Conservation Commission, a seven-member volunteer board, currently has two openings for an up to 3-year term for voting alternates starting July 1, 2021. These alternates support the Conservation Commission by enabling the Commission to meet more frequently to avoid issues resulting from a lack of quorum. If you are a Holliston resident with an interest in wetland and conservation issues and would like to serve your Town on a volunteer board, then the Commission encourages you to apply for this position. No experience is necessary, however, experience in a field such as science, engineering, or regulatory matters is helpful.
The Conservation Commission has the statutory responsibility to protect Holliston’s natural assets, including Holliston’s wetlands, watershed resources, and conservation lands. Please note that this position requires a significant time commitment: the Conservation Commission meets every other Tuesday evening in the Town Hall, or the current conditions, remotely, to hold wetland application hearings and issue decisions regarding these applications, review potential wetland violations, discuss further land acquisitions or management efforts, plan future events, review legal matters, answer inquiries from other municipal boards, review complaints, discuss budgetary matters, and other related Conservation affairs. For more information, please visit the Commission’s website: http://www.townofholliston.us/conservation-commission.
Please send your Letter of Interest and Resume to Christopher Bajdek, Conservation Chair, Holliston Conservation Commission, Town Hall, 703 Washington Street, 01746 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions regarding this position, please call Ryan Clapp (Conservation Agent) at 508-429-0607.
The application deadline is Friday, June 25, 2021, or until position is filled.
The Town of Holliston is an equal opportunity employer.
