REGISTER NOW – MMLA Webinar –- Wetlands Act 21 Day Deadlines and Annual Business Meeting
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 12:30 p.m.
Gregor I. McGregor, Esq. of McGregor Legere & Stevens PC, will review the Oyster Creek and recent Boston Clear Water cases on compliance with the 21-day deadlines in the Wetlands Protection Act. Home Rule bylaw and ordinance jurisdiction over projects in and near wetland resource areas depends on Conservation Commission compliance with 21-day deadlines for commencing public hearings and issuing decisions on Notices of Intent (NOIs). These provisions in the state Wetlands Protection Act are binding on Commissions and failure to meet them is potentially fatal to any decision the Commission may render. This program will address how municipal counsels and their Conservation Commissions can cope with those strict deadlines.
MMLA will hold its Annual Business Meeting immediately following the educational program portion of the webinar. During the meeting, MMLA members will vote on the Nominating Committee’s recommended slate of officers and directors for the July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023 term. Members will also vote on proposed revisions to MMLA Bylaws and conduct any other necessary business. See the links below for the Nominating Committee slate and documents about the proposed Bylaw revisions:

- Clean copy of proposed revised Bylaws
- Comparison of current and proposed revised Bylaws
