What is the Community Preservation Act (CPA)?
Voted by Town Meeting in May 2004,and then by a vote of the citizens at the November 2, 2004, election. The act allows our Town to accumulate additional revenue to provide much needed financial resources to expand and preserve our open space, historic, recreational and community housing . For residential property the value of the property is reduced by 100,000, considered an exemption. The tax is then calculated and a 2% surcharge is added. This is calculated each quarter to reflect any adjustments which may have been made to the tax due.
