The Rockport Board of Selectmen will appoint new members to the Conservation Commission, which has not met in four months because of an inability to reach a quorum. Currently there are only three members on the Conservation Commission, which is one person shy of the four-person quorum.
The Rockport Conservation Commission is responsible for protecting the land, water, and natural resources of the town. Rockport construction projects that require Conservation Commission approval have been delayed.
There are currently three candidates in consideration to be appointed to the Conservation Commission. Candidates will be interviewed at the August 30th Rockport Board of Selectmen meeting. In addition, Rockport does not have a conservation agent, though the town is currently accepting applications.
