Plan of Conservation & Development

One of the ways in which our residents govern themselves is through their participation in the Plan of Conservation and Development survey – where our responses to important questions define the guiding principles and goals for our town boards and commissions to follow. 

Lyme conducts this survey approximately every 10 years to develop an updated Plan of Conservation and Development for our local government to follow.  Once residents’ answers to the survey are analyzed and summarized, their wishes become the goals of the town’s boards and commissions.
