The Middleboro Community Preservation Committee – CPC – was created via bylaw passed at the June 6, 2011 Annual Town Meeting. You can contact the committee by email or by attending our meetings. Corrections or other information about the content of the web site can be sent to the CPC Webmaster. Information about exemptions is here.
Duties of the CPC
The committee is charged with administering funds raised by the Community Preservation Act – CPA – which was adopted by Middleboro by ballot question in 2010. Funds are raised by a 1% surcharge on property tax and matched at a varying level by the state. Besides the matching state funds, CPA money often attracts grants – increasing the value of your CPA dollars even more. CPA funds can only be spent on preservation of open space, historic assets, creation of recreational assets, and community housing. More information about CPA can be found on our CPA page.
Projects are proposed to the CPC who then vote if the project should be recommended to town meeting. CPC approved projects then go to town meeting where you – the Middleboro voter – decide to approve or deny the spending.
CPC meetings are posted with the town clerk and on this page. This web site was created with the intention of providing the public with as much information as possible about the management of your CPA dollars.
