Stoneham weighs Community Preservation Act

A proposal that the town adopt a 1 percent property tax surcharge to raise revenue for affordable housing, open space, historic preservation, and recreation projects is stirring debate in Stoneham as it heads for a ballot vote next month.

Town Meeting last Oct. 1 unanimously approved the town’s acceptance of the Community Preservation Act. But to be adopted, the measure must be approved by voters at the April 2 annual town election.
