Exeter Conservation Commission

The Exeter Conservation Commission was established in 1965 in accordance with Revised Statutes Annotated (RSA) 36-A to assist in protecting the natural resources of the municipality. The Commission advises and makes recommendations for the protection, development and utilization of local natural resources and open space.

The Exeter Conservation Commission serves as an advisory board to the NH State Wetlands Bureau and the Exeter Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment. The Conservation Commission has two broad responsibilities. The first of these is to evaluate and make recommendations to the State of NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) on permits to do work in or near wetlands. The second responsibility is to make recommendations to the Planning Board and Zoning Board on matters pertaining to the Natural Resource Protection overlay zoning districts and site plan reviews.

The Commission meets the second Tuesday of each month in the Nowak Room of the Town Office at 7PM. Residents are welcome to attend the meetings and share their concerns regarding the town's natural resources. Meetings are also broadcast live on cable channel 22.

Conservation maps and publications can be purchased at the Exeter Planning & Building Department office at the Town Office at 10 Front Street, Monday thru Friday 8:00AM - 4:30PM, or call the office at 773-6112.
