March 8, 2018: Community Preservation Act discussion

79

On Thursday, March 8, the City of Boston will host an open forum for community members in East Boston to engage in discussions around the future of the Community Preservation Act (CPA) as it is implemented in neighborhoods throughout Boston. 

The new $20 million fund, established as a result of the passage of the Community Preservation Act in 2016, will support historic preservation, affordable housing, open space and recreation across the city. 

In July 2017, Mayor Walsh announced the selection of Christine Poff to serve as the Director of the Community Preservation Committee, which aims to shape the future of investments in Boston’s neighborhoods with funds contributed through the Community Preservation Act (CPA).

This event is being hosted by City Councilor Lydia Edwards, State Senator Joseph Boncore, and State Representative Adrian Madaro.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 8, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

WHERE: East Boston High School, 86 White St, East Boston
