Chapter 61, 61A, 61B annual renewal forms will be mailed out to all who are currently enrolled in these programs in August. Please fill them out completely for your category(ies), sign and date the back. There is a place for your e-mail as well, if you choose to give that to us. Also, please read and sign the Owner’s Acknowledgement and return a copy to us with your application.
Chapter 61 (Forest Management): because you renew your Forest Management Plan on a 10-year cycle, you are not required by law to file this form annually, but we very much appreciate it if you do, as it keeps us informed of progress you are making on your planned work. The Chap. 61 portion of the form is one small box directly under the owner and property identification on page 1.
Chapter 61A (agricultural, horticultural): this program is reported on the lower half of page 1. You are required to give a market value of last year’s yield from the land; if it was pastured, what would have been the cost of providing that crop to the animals? If you rent out your land, the lessee must also sign the back of the form, in addition to your signatures.
Chapter 61B (open space, recreational): please fill out the owner and property identification block on page one, then skip to the top half of page 2 and fill out that section. Sign and date the form, and it’s complete.
These forms must be filed at the Assessors’ Office on or before Monday, October 1, 2018!!
You can mail them to us at PO Box 240, Conway, MA 01341 or scan and send them to us at email@example.com or drop them off at our office in the Town Hall or at the Town Offices at 32 Main St. But please be sure to fill them out completely and to get them in on time!!
