Conservation Advisory Council (CAC)

Sign the petition to demand the Town of Ulster Board establish a CAC!

A Conservation Advisory Council is an advisory board that is appointed by the local municipality’s government body (town board in our case) that advises the legislative body, the planning and zoning boards. Their job is to inventory the open spaces, and protect the natural resources of a city or town.

CAC’s are established by a municipality under Article 12-F Section 239-X of NYS General Municipal Law. They may be established by ordinance or by local law. Read here for more information on CAC’s.
