​District Environmental Commissions

The District Environmental Commissions are responsible for assuring that developments or subdivisions comply with Act 250’s ten criteria.  There are nine District Commissions, each composed of a chair, two members, and four alternates and each serving one of nine districts.  Commissioners reside in the districts served by their Commission.  All Commissioners are appointed by the Governor.
