The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a smart growth tool that helps communities preserve open space and historic sites, create affordable housing, and develop outdoor recreational facilities. Each community that adopts the CPA is required to establish a Community Preservation Committee (CPC) to administer its Community Preservation funds. Weymouth’s CPC is a nine-member body consisting of one member of the Conservation Commission; one member of the Planning Board; one member of the Historical Commission; one member of the Housing Authority; one member of the Recreation Commission; one member of the Town Council; and three residents at-large appointed by the Mayor.

The CPC has three responsibilities:

Develop a Community Preservation Plan. The first responsibility is to study the needs, possibilities, and resources of the community with regards to community preservation. Following its research, the CPC develops a local CPA plan to guide its decision-making on CPA project proposals. 

Review and Recommend CPA Projects. The second responsibility is to accept project proposals from the community and conduct a thorough review of them, with the aim of selecting the most advantageous projects for recommendation to the Mayor.

Keep Records and Report on the CPA Budget. The third responsibility is to keep records of all CPC meetings, proposals, and recommendations, and to submit a CPA budget annually to the Mayor.
