The city of Somerville is looking for volunteers to serve on a committee that will oversee newly acquired funding through the Community Preservation Act. The nine-member Community Preservation Committee will review possible projects for an estimated $1.5 million in annual funding derived from state funds and a tax surcharge approved by Somerville voters last year. The money can be used on projects focused on open space, historic resources, or affordable housing. The committee will include five appointees from city boards and commissions and four other residents to be selected by Mayor Joseph Curtatone and approved by the city’s Board of Aldermen. More information can be found on the city’s website, . The deadline to apply for the committee is Sept. 22.
