A&K environmental attorneys Jessica Wall and Olympia “Libby” Bowker will be presenting at the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions’ Annual Environmental Conference. The workshop, “Effective Project Review: Best Practices for Conservation Commissions,” takes place on Saturday, March 4, 2023.

This workshop will provide conservation commissioners and agents with best practices to apply throughout a proposed project’s life cycle. We will discuss practices and strategies to implement at each stage of a project, including reviewing an application, taking public comment, how to conduct site visits, closing a public hearing, drafting strong decisions, and enforcing those decisions later. We’ll illustrate these points with case studies and real-life examples. Conservation commissioners with two or more years of experience will find this workshop very beneficial.
