CPA Project List for 2012

There are $449,000 available for projects this year.         As you can see from the list below, the Community Preservation Committee has a challenge ahead.   Now if logic were to prevail, it might be just achievable, but there is a lot of politics mixed into these projects complete with whole sectors of our community with vested interests in ‘their’ particular projects.  

Hopefully cool heads will prevail.

In the coming weeks, several meetings will be organized around the three mandated CPA sectors: affordable housing (Just one this year), historic preservation and open space.      It is hoped that PortMedia will be filming the deliberation proceedings as they did last year.       Then everyone, either on the Cable or on the Internet; will be able to see and have a say as to where our tax money should be going!
