Waltham fires up Community Preservation Act program

Posted by Ralph Ranalli December 3, 2007 10:31 AM


For the first time, the Community Preservation Act Committee next Wednesday will begin reviewing applications for grants for historical preservation, open space or recreation and community housing projects.

This is the first year that the committee has had money to award, Waltham became a CPA community in 2005 and formed the committee a year later. The meeting will give applicants the opportunity to make a brief presentation about their idea.

Approved applications are forwarded to the City Council for appropriation within 20 days.

The committee will meet at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall in the City Council Chambers.
