Town Of Brookline Invites Residents To Attend Community Preservation Act Public Hearing

428

The Town of Brookline invites residents to attend a public hearing focusing on the Community Preservation Act (CPA).

The public hearing will be held on Monday, July 17, 20223, at 06:30 p.m. in the Select Board Meeting Room, Sixth Floor, Town Hall. Residents may also attend via Zoom by registering here.

.

The public hearing will begin with a presentation of the draft Community Preservation Plan, followed by a committee discussion, and then will be open for public comment.

Town voters approved entry into the CPA program in a ballot referendum in 2021. This allows the Town to assess a 1 percent surcharge to tax bills, which is held in a local Community Preservation Fund.

Community members are encouraged to provide their thoughts on Brookline’s needs, opportunities, and resources in areas in which CPA funding may be used: open space, historic preservation, outdoor recreation, and community housing.

Residents can view the draft Community Preservation Plan online here, or in person at the Planning Department, 3rd Floor, at Brookline Town Hall.

Meeting materials will be posted to the Town of Brookline Document Center.

Those with questions regarding the Community Preservation Plan or the public hearing can contact cpa@brooklinema.gov or 617-730-2612.
