The Community Preservation Committee
About the CPC:
The Community Preservation Act requires the town to create a Community Preservation Committee, consisting of members representing town committees.
This committee reviews projects that are seeking CPA dollars and determines how the money will be spent. In addition the committee will present a report to the Town Meeting at least once a year to explain what projects are being considered, what criteria were used to pick the funded projects, and which projects will ultimately be funded.
The money must be divided among projects having to do with open space, affordable housing and historic preservation. At least 10% of the money must be spent on each of those types of projects, and the balance is spent per the determination of the Community Preservation Committee.
How to get involved:
The first way to get involved is attend the CPC Meetings and Public Hearings as well as Annual and Special Town Meetings. The CPC meets on the last Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM in the Town Hall Community Meeting Room.
The Community Preservation Committee can be reached through the Board of Selectmen Office at (978) 649-2300 x 100.
