PURPOSE AND GOALS:
Under the authorization of New Hampshire State Law (RSA 31:A), the purpose of the Hollis Conservation Commission (HCC) is to protect the natural and rural character of Hollis by protecting and conserving natural resources. The HCC places emphasis on protection of farm and forest resources, aquifers, surface waters, wetlands and scenic views.
The HCC meets the first and third Wednesday of each month, at 7pm in the Town Hall Community Room.
The HCC is a volunteer organization made up of seven regular and an unspecified number of alternate members, who shall be appointed by the Board of Selectmen for three-year terms, unless the appointee is filling the unexpired term of a retiring member.
