Historic Preservation and the Community Preservation Act

What is CPA and what can it do for your organization?

This November, Boston voters will have the opportunity to vote YES for the Community Preservation Act in Boston. The Community Preservation Act (CPA) will bring innumerable benefits to the City of Boston, furthering the work of preservationists and community builders alike. CPA will provide funding for preservation in amounts we’ve never seen in Boston. With the passage of CPA, the typical Boston homeowner whose home is assessed at $500,000 would pay approximately $24 per year towards this investment, and in turn, the City would generate $20 million or more every year for CPA projects including affordable housing, parks/open space, and historic preservation.

Please join the Boston Preservation Alliance and Historic Boston Incorporated, Thursday June 23rd, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the African Meeting House to learn more. 

During our time together we will discuss how CPA money would be raised, how it would impact your neighborhood, and where the funds would go. Come and get your questions answered and brainstorm how the CPA can help your organization. At this meeting we will discuss:

  • Obtaining formal endorsements from preservation and neighborhood organizations that will be used in the support campaign for CPA
  • The elements of a campaign underway and  how you can get involved in promoting the CPA ballot initiative in your community and among your members

 This event is free and open to Organizational Members and partners of the Boston Preservation Alliance and/or Historic Boston, Inc. and any other friends of historic preservation.

This event is next week!

Please register ASAP.  
Thursday, June 23
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
African Meeting House, 46 Joy Street, Beacon Hill
Registration required.
