Mission Statement for The Coastal Pond Management Committee

Evaluate each coastal pond separately and independently, taking into consideration all of the Town sanctioned activities that take place in the particular pond and to integrate these activities into a management plan that balances the preservation of natural resources and improved water quality with the public use of the resource.

There are seven members of this committee who are appointed annually by the Board of Selectmen. They possess varied related backgrounds including but not limited to marine science, recreational fishermen/shell fishermen, recreational boaters, commercial marine industry and commercial shell fishermen or shellfish dealers. Of these seven appointees, one member of this committee must be from the Town Planning Board (or its designee), one member must be from the Town Conservation Commission (or its designee), one member must be from the Town Waterways Committee (or its designee).

The Coastal Pond Management Committee is an advisory committee to the Board of Selectmen and may make recommendations to other boards and committees through the Board of Selectmen.
