The Community Preservation Act–WE GOT IT–Yes on Number 5

The Community Preservation Act.  The CPA is an important tool designed to help create affordable homes, better parks and playgrounds, preserve our historic neighborhood buildings, and create jobs. CPA funds are generated by a small surcharge on local property tax bills matched by a statewide trust fund to maximize their impact. The typical Boston homeowner whose home is assessed at $500,000 would pay approximately $24 per year towards this investment, and in turn, the City would generate $20 million or more every year for CPA projects. We are trying to get as many Charlestown families to formally endorse the Act and vote for it on November 8th.  For more information follow this link https://act.yesbetterboston.com/page/s/join-the-yes-for-a-better-boston-coalition  You can see current endorsers here: http://www.yesbetterboston.com/endorsemeents/
