Community Preservation Committee approves plan for first authorization of CPA funds

FM #813 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 813 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares the Community Preservation Committee meeting held in hybrid format on Tuesday, June 7, 2022. 

  • Chair/membership: C Feeley, D McNeill (remote), M Doyle, J Livingstone, P Malcolm, M Giardino, W Simarian, L Oxford [R Power, absent]
  • Town Administration: J Hellen, A Alleyne, K Bertone   

The meeting approved the minutes of the prior meeting via roll call vote (8-0-1; 8 for, 0 against, 1 absent). 

With some discussion on the overall plan, the committee then voted on each of the resolutions which passed with the same 8-0-1 vote via roll call.

a. Resolution 22-36: FY23 CPA Reservations (Budget) $1,887,000

b. Resolution 22-37: FY23 CPC Appropriation of Capital Funds (Project Recommendations) - $905,000

c. Resolution 33-38: CPC Appropriation of Funds - Debt Service Maple Hill Land - $271,489

There may not be a need to meet until September or later. With the new fiscal year, and the rolling project form, someone could propose something at any time. Once they did, it would be scheduled for a meeting.

The recording runs about 26 minutes, so let’s listen to the Community Preservation Committee discussion on June 7, 2022.
