Community Preservation invites you to a public information hearing – May 18

by beth on May 10, 2017

Do you have a potential preservation project? Or maybe you have strong opinions on what future projects the Town should fund through the Community Preservation Act.

The Community Preservation Committee is issuing a public invitation to their Public Information session on Thursday, May 18:

The Southborough Community Preservation Committee is holding a Public Information Hearing on Thursday, May 18, 2017, at 7PM in Cordaville Hall (Rooms A/B), 9 Cordaville Road; Southborough, MA to review the Community Preservation Act (CPA) and the process to apply for Southborough CPA funds. The information is relevant to all residents who want to learn more about the CPA, and it is also an opportunity to share your ideas for future projects. Attendance is highly recommended to those planning to apply for the next round of funding.

For those of you not familiar with the CPC, here is an explanation from the Town website of what kind of projects can fall under it:

The Community Preservation Committee shall make recommendations to the Town Meeting for the acquisition, creation and preservation of open space; for the acquisition, rehabilitation, restoration and preservations of historic resources; for the acquisition, creation and preservation of land for recreational use; for the creation, preservation support of community housing; and for the rehabilitation or restoration of such open space, land for recreational use and community housing that is acquired or created as provided in this section. With respect to community housing, the Community Preservation Committee shall recommend, wherever possible, the reuse of existing buildings, or construction of new buildings on previously developed sites.

Updated (5/10/17 3:30 pm): The Town website is having some loading issues today. So, “click here” isn’t working properly this afternoon. You can check back another day (hopefully tomorrow). But the main information you need is already in the text above.
