For the purposes of the management and conservation of the Town-wide forest in the Town, it is necessary to create a Tree Conservation Advisory Commission to advise the Town Board, Conservation Board and Planning Board in carrying out the goals of the Comprehensive Zoning Plan with respect to tree conservation and to function as the Town’s community forest ombudsmen, including but not limited to providing education and outreach programs to the public. The Tree Conservation Advisory Commission shall report to the Town Board, the Conservation Board and the Planning Board on the status and health of the Yorktown forest on an annual basis. The Tree Conservation Advisory Commission shall be responsible for overseeing the establishment, regular updates and implementation of a Town-wide forest management plan, to be adopted by the Town Board.
The Commission is a 5 member board with 1 alternate member that may also be appointed. Each member serves a 3 year term. The Board meets on the third Monday of the month at 7:00 pm in Town Hall.
