The function of the Town of Orchard Park Conservation Board is to approve or deny submitted landscape plans and determine what is the required landscaping for Commercial projects.

The Conservation Board meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at The Community Activities Center- 4520 California Road. All meetings start promptly at 7:00 p.m.

In 1971 the Town Board established a Conservation Advisory Board which functioned as an adhoc advisory committee. The Conservation Board was authorized by Town ordinance in 1981 pursuant to New York State enabling legislation. The Conservation Board consists of seven members appointed by the Town Board. Each member serves for a two year term, with three members’ terms expiring in even years and four members’ terms expiring in odd years. This volunteer board serves for the purpose of generating and reviewing proposed environmental ordinances intended to become part of Orchard Park Town Law, to review, amend, and approve required landscape plans submitted as part of required documents for business, commercial and industrial development projects, to review and recommend to the Town Board on requests for Conservation Easements. In the past this Board has completed an open space inventory, which was updated several years ago. It has researched and produced a Town Open Space Plan and has recently worked on the establishment of the Town Green Print.
