The North Andover Community Preservation Committee is accepting requests for funding. To qualify for consideration, projects must help preserve the town’s open space, historic buildings and landscapes, affordable housing, or land for recreational opportunities. Funding requests must be received by March 8 to be considered for recommendation at the May 2013 annual Town Meeting. Each funding request must include the purpose and need for the item and be documented with appropriate support. Those who wish to submit a project for consideration should obtain quotes for project costs; those who have multiple project requests are asked to prioritize projects.
