Working For The Community Preservation Act
The Community Preservation Coalition is an alliance of open space, affordable housing, and historic preservation organizations working with municipalities to help them understand, adopt, and implement the Massachusetts Community Preservation Act (CPA).
The Coalition was formed in the 1990s with the goal of achieving passage of the Community Preservation Act. With leadership and help from our diverse Steering Committee, the Coalition works to preserve Massachusetts communities’ unique character by advocating for and supporting the Community Preservation Act, advancing smart growth and sustainable development for communities across the Commonwealth.
