Updates to Conservation Rules and Regs

On APRIL 26, 2021 at 5:30 PM in the Town Hall, the Scituate Conservation Commission will hold a public hearing on a proposal to amend the Rules and Regulations under Section 30700 of the Town of Scituate Code of Bylaws (the Wetlands Bylaw). The Conservation Commission will vote on whether to amend the Wetlands Regulations to define the floodplain district using the effective FEMA maps, rather than the pending maps which have been rescinded by FEMA.  This is necessary in order to remain in the National Flood Insurance Program and the Community Rating System.

The effective date of any revisions voted subsequent to the hearing shall be two weeks after notification to the office of the Town Clerk.
