Preservation proposals sought


Applications for proposals for funding through the Community Preservation Act are due by Wednesday in order to be considered for recommendation at the Annual Town Meeting in April. The town’s Community Preservation Committee recommends funding by the CPA to Town Meeting, which has the final say on town appropriations. The money comes from a local property tax surchage, supplemented by state funds, and can be used for open space, historic preservation, affordable housing, and public recreation. The committee is weighing a proposal to review town recreation facilities and open spaces, and develop a master plan for them. Other CPA-funded projects include the current repair of the Kingston Town Wharf and the future resurfacing of tennis and basketball courts at Gray’s Beach and the Reed Center. The committee next meets on Nov. 6.
