The Town of Clinton Conservation Advisory Committee (CAC) is seeking new members. The results of the Community Values Survey in 2008 showed that Clinton residents want the small town atmosphere, rural character, and the quality of life in Clinton preserved. It is the CAC’s mission to help maintain these goals by conserving vital drinking water resources, our natural landscapes, wildlife habitats, working farms, and open space in the town.
What is the CAC’s role?
- Advise the Planning Board, Building Office, and Zoning Board of Appeals on subdivisions, site plans, special use permits, community planning and development, and wise use of the town’s natural resources.
- Host programs at the Clinton Community Library to educate residents on the importance of their participation in the preservation of drinking water, wildlife habitats, and the town’s scenic beauty.
- Maintain an educational web page on the town’s website, at https://www.townofclinton.com/government/conservation-advisory-council/.
- Provide the Welcome Folders that are made available to new and existing residents, containing town and environmental information.
- Maintain and lead educational walks at the Clinton Nature Trail located near the Town Hall on Centre Road.
Membership of the CAC consists of interested citizens from across the Clinton community, and can have up to 9 members. Each member is appointed by the town board for a two-year renewable term, and serves without compensation. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 3:30pm.
