Community Preservation Act Committee

  Print

 

The Community Preservation Act (CPA) was enacted by legislation to provide dedicated funding for preservation of open space, historic resources and community housing. CPA funding is provided through a local real estate tax surcharge and a statewide Registry of Deeds surcharge. Easton adopted the CPA in 2001. For more information CPA and how it works, click here.

 

Easton’s voters adopted the CPA because they recognized the importance of preserving the treasures that comprise Easton’s character and contribute to our quality of life.

 

Since adopting the CPA, Easton's CPA funds have been used to acquire open space, construct playgrounds, preserve historically significant structures and protect community housing.  For a list of previously approved projects, click Projects & Proposals in the box on the left.
