Somerville Community Preservation Plan Hearing & Application Workshop, April 28

The Somerville Community Preservation Committee is holding its annual Community Preservation Plan public hearing on Wednesday, April 28, at 7 p.m.

The Community Preservation Plan establishes how $2 million in Fiscal Year 2022 Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds will be allocated across affordable housing, historic resources, and open space categories. The draft plan is available at somervillema.gov/CPA.

Immediately before the hearing, at 6:30 p.m., the Committee will host a workshop for individuals and organizations who would like to learn more about how to apply for CPA funds. The workshop will cover the process for applying for CPA funds for a project on City land, restrictions for open space and historic resources projects, and the program to support feasibility studies for some proposed projects.

The workshop and the hearing will be held virtually. Visit somervillema.gov/CPA or call 311 for instructions on how to join. Written comments about the Community Preservation Plan may also be emailed to Judith Tumusiime, Community Preservation Act Manager, at jtumusiime@somervillema.gov by Friday, May 14.
