About the Committee

The Community Preservation Act (CPA), M.G.L. Chapter 44B, which is enabling legislation allowing cities and towns in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to adopt a property tax surcharge, was adopted by the Legislature and signed into law by Governor Cellucci in September 2000. The CPA allows any city or town in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to adopt a property tax surcharge of up to 3%, the revenues from which are matched by State funds. The citizens of Longmeadow voted to adopt the CPA in June of 2006 at a property tax surcharge rate of 1%.

The Community Preservation Committee is responsible for making recommendations for how CPA funds should be spent in the four CPA program areas: Community Housing, Historic Preservation, Open Space and Recreation. The committee welcomes comments and suggestions, and encourages people to attend its meetings and speak during the Public Comment Period.
