Conservation Advisory Council
The CAC consists of nine appointed members, each of whom serve a two-year term.
The Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) was created by the Town of Danby in June, 2010, and first met in January, 2011. Its purpose and authority, structure and membership, and funding are described in Resolution 2010-082.
One of the ways the Conservation Advisory Council helps to protect land in Danby is through the Danby Conservation Easement Program. The CAC is searching for landowners interested in preserving and protecting their land from future development. The Danby conservation easement is a flexible way for landowners to protect their land in perpetuity – forever, in a word. A CAC member works with the landowner to help them determine the desired level of protection. Ownership and use remain with the landowner, but easement limitations pass on with sale of the property to future owners.
