Preservation Committee seeks project ideas


The Community Preservation Committee will hold its annual public hearing at Town Hall on Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. to consider projects it might fund with local and state tax money. The local money comes from a 1.5 percent surcharge on property taxes, which currently is matched 26 percent by the state. “It’s kind of a shaking-the-tree thing,” committee chairman Russ Bonetti said of the hearing, which is required by state law. “It’s an outreach to the community to say we have funds available and we’re looking for projects.” Bonetti said he expects the Cohasset Swim Club to ask for money for improvements to the outdoor community facility. There’s also interest, he said, in doing restoration work at the American Revolution-era Cedar Street cemetery.
