Appointment Authority: Appointed By Board of Selectmen
The Lake Boon Commission is empowered to regulate recreational activities and the use of motorboats. It was created in 1941 by the State Legislature through the Acts of 1941, Chapters 712 and 713. The Commission consists of three unpaid members (two from Stow and one from Hudson) who are appointed by the Boards of Selectmen of each Town.
Monthly Commission meetings (held May October) are open to the public and are usually held at the Stow Town Building. Dates and times are posted in both Stow and Hudson.
The Lake Boon Commission is a different organization from the Lake Boon Association. The Association is a private social organization created by summer residents of Lake Boon in the early 1900's, then became incorporated in 1921. The Association and the Commission share the goals of preserving, protecting and enhancing the environmental, aesthetic, recreational and economic value of Lake Boon. Both organizations strive for a sensible balance between recreational activities and healthy wildlife habitats through in-lake and watershed management.
A copy of Lake regulations and the Massachusettss Boaters Guide is highly recommended. Regulations are available at the Lake Rules section of the Lake Boon Association web site.
