pdf Position Paper No. 1 - Inland Wetlands Commission Training
"The 1996 amendments to the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Act specifies training requirements of Inland Wetlands Commissioners. The Connecticut Association of Conservation Commissions (CACIWC) firmly believes that the minimum requirements outlined in the legislation are insufficient and that the level of IWC required training should be greatly exceeded. Further, CACIWC believes it is critical that a sufficient number of dedicated staff and consultants be made available to IWCs."
pdf Position Paper No. 2 - Combined versus Separate Conservation and Inland Wetland Commissions - “It is CACIWC’s position that every Connecticut town should have a Conservation Commission, and that the duties and responsibilities of that commission should not be combined with another town board or agency.”
pdf Position Paper No. 3 - Inland Wetlands and Watercourse Commissions: Separate versus Combined with Planning and Zoning Commissions
“It is CACIWC’s position that a municipal commission or agency established to carry out the regulatory and administrative functions and responsibilities of Connecticut’s Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Act should not be combined with a Planning, Zoning or Planning and Zoning Commission.”
pdf Position Paper No. 4 - Upland Review Areas: A Position on Minimum Width and Areas of Impact:
CACIWC supports inclusion of a 100 foot Upland Review Area in the municipal inland wetlands regulations as a minimum area of review to properly assess the potential impacts of a proposed activity on inland wetlands and watercourses.
