Hanson

Website launched

The Community Preservation Committee  now has its own website. The panel, which makes recommendations to Town Meeting on expenditures from Hanson’s Community Preservation Fund, launched the site (hansoncommunitypreservation.org) this past week, according to the group’s chairwoman, Laura FitzGerald-Kemmett.  The new site, which is in addition to the page the committee has on the town website, includes descriptions and pictures of projects that have received support from the fund. It also provides information on the Community Preservation Act, the state law that allows cities and towns to adopt a property tax surcharge — matched with state dollars — to support open space, affordable housing, historic preservation, and recreation projects. “We really wanted to have full transparency, to have all the information about how Community Preservation funds in Hanson have been spent. We wanted it to be at people’s fingertips if they are curious about the types of projects being funded or if they are thinking of applying for funding for a project,’’ FitzGerald-Kemmett said. The committee, meanwhile, recently welcomed two new members — Joseph Gamache,  who will serve as the new Planning Board designee, and Robert Overholtzer,  who was named by selectmen to an at-large seat.
