Municipal Guide

A Conservation Land Stewardship Guide for Municipal LCIP Properties.

This Stewardship Guide for Municipal LCIP Properties was created to explain the concepts and principles of conservation easement stewardship and town-owned land management. The Guide provides information to help municipalities understand their role and responsibilities under the LCIP program and offers answers to many common questions. It also serves as a useful introduction and review of the program for new conservation commission members and other municipal officials.

This Guide is a working document and will be updated periodically. CLSP encourages all municipalities to get in touch if they have feedback or questions. Please email
