Preserving integrity 

Rural character is built from natural and historical resources

"The Andover Conservation Commission (ACC) has the important role of ensuring that our Master Plan includes provisions and guidelines for conserving and protecting our land, water and other natural resources in both a town-wide aspect and regional context. If Andover is to retain its rural character—deemed very important in the 1992 Master Plan, as well as in the May 2007 Overview of Master Plan Survey Findings—we all need to protect our natural, historic, scenic and agricultural resources. The goal of the ACC is to ensure the future ecological and sustainable health of Andover, as well as its rural character."
