The Earth Removal Board, created in 1971, was formed to implement the Earth Removal Bylaw which, at the time, was passed primarily to prevent soil stripping and the creation of unsafe and unsightly conditions in Town.

The Earth Removal Board consists of five members, one each appointed by the Moderator, the Board of Selectmen, the Conservation Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning Board for three-year terms. The Earth Removal Board conducts hearings and issues permits for the removal of earth material from any land not in public use in accordance with Town Bylaws.
