Agendas & Minutes

Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval. View most recent Agendas and Minutes.
The Select Board established the Ag Committee in 2006 to serve as a forum for matters of interest to farmers in Concord, and to advise the Board on how the Town can best support farming in Concord. The committee's five members include three Concord residents who are engaged in farming and two citizens at-large interested in promoting farming. The committee meets monthly, usually on the second Thursday. All are welcome.
