Conservation Commission

The mission of the Conservation Commission is to promote sustainable and environmentally sound land-use planning and management to protect or enhance the Town's agricultural, natural and historic resources in support of the Hinesburg Town Plan through: The Hinesburg Conservation Commission operates as an advisory board to the local Development Review Board, Planning Commission, and Select Board. The Conservation Commission is also responsible for the management of Geprags Community Park and recommending expenditures from the Land Conservation Fund for local projects.

Greenspace Plan

Greenspace includes all the elements of the town’s landscape, both land and water, that are valued for their natural resources, ecosystem services, agricultural or forest production, recreational opportunities, scenic views, and other public benefits. The Conservation Commission envisions that this Greenspace Plan will be used to:
  • Identify valued natural resources deserving protection
  • Educate the public about the benefits derived from and threats posed to its natural resources
  • Recommend voluntary and regulatory measures based on current scientific knowledge that will help protect the town’s rural character and its valued resources
  • Encourage stewardship activities and best management practices
