The Richmond Conservation Commission (RCC) holds monthly meetings to discuss various environmental conservation issues relating to Richmond. The meetings may involve review of design or master plans for proposed land developments in Richmond which allow comments to be submitted to the Richmond town planner, the Planning Board, and /or the State Department of Environmental Management. These efforts help to address critical issues potentially affecting important land and water resources, and help determine whether or how a development should be approved for construction.
