The CPA is Boston’s Next Act!

In November 2016, 74% of Boston voters adopted the Community Preservation Act (CPA), which had been approved by the Massachusetts legislature in 2000. Starting in 2018, approximately $20 million will be available every year for historic preservation, affordable housing, and parks and open space improvements (including outdoor recreation facilities) in Boston.

For our June meeting, the HRC welcomes Christine Poff, Boston’s Community Preservation Director, to provide us a refresher on the CPA law and to report on the City of Boston’s adoption and implementation of this important financial resource, including the new volunteer Community Preservation Committee. Using completed projects from other CPA cities and towns as models, Christine will describe the development of an Annual Community Preservation Plan and will explain the CPA project application and selection process.

A Jamaica Plain resident, Christine Poff previously served as executive director of the Franklin Park Coalition, where she brought back the Elma Lewis “Playhouse in the Park” summer concerts and the spring Kite Festival, in addition to a summer youth jobs crew, a large volunteer program, and other arts and cultural events. She also worked to develop public health and community programs for Dorchester House and Codman Square health centers. Christine is passionate about neighborhoods, committed to social justice and equity, and loves getting to know residents of Boston’s diverse and varied communities. She earned a B.A. from Wellesley College and an M.S.W. from City University in New York.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available.
