|In 1974 on Town Board adoption of the Open Space Index (a catalog of 164 significant open space areas in the Town), the former Conservation Advisory Council became a Conservation Board. The Huntington Conservation Board is a Town Board-appointed volunteer advisory organization. The Board is constituted pursuant to Article 12-F, Section 239-Y of General Municipal Law, which provides it a specific advisory review function. The Conservation Board reviews and provides comments to the Town Board, Planning Board, Board of Trustees, and Zoning Board of Appeals on applications for land use change that have potential to affect Open Space Index-mapped property. The Conservation Board also has a codified review function pursuant to the Town Marine Conservation Law, Section 137 of Town Code. In addition to its advisory review functions, the Conservation Board serves as a vital conduit for conveying environmental information on key topic areas (land use and review, marine and freshwater resources, parks, solid waste, and legislation) to Town leaders. The Conservation Board coordinates the volunteer Park Stewardship Program that aids the monitoring and management of Town parkland. The Conservation Board meets the first and third Tuesday of every month.
