Community Preservation Committee

About the Committee:

The Town of Shrewsbury adopted the Community Preservation Act (CPA) in August 8, 2020. The CPA is a smart growth tool that helps communities preserve open space and historic sites, create affordable housing, and develop outdoor recreational facilities. CPA also helps strengthen the state and local economies by expanding housing opportunities and construction jobs for the Commonwealth's workforce, and by supporting the tourism industry through preservation of the Commonwealth’s historic and natural resources Each community that adopts the Community Preservation Act is required to establish a Community Preservation Committee (CPC) to administer the program.  

History:

The Board of Selectmen appointed the At-Large Shrewsbury Community Preservation Committee on April 27, 2021. The Planning Board, Conservation Commission, Historical Commission, Shrewsbury Housing Authority and Parks and Cemetery Commission appointed 1 member from their respective groups to serve on the Community Preservation Committee.
