This is a very informative TEDx talk about what could be possible if we passed the Community Preservation Act for our town(s).
Shelburne Falls resident, Wendy Ferris says "It's imperative that when we talk about the natural and cultural assets that define our "sense of place", we also talk about the tools to preserve, repair and enhance them, and the CPA does just that."
$100,000. a year to spend or save to be used on Open Space Conservation Projects, Affordable housing, Historical Preservation projects and Public Recreation.
It would take 61 voters' signatures on a petition in Buckland to put this on the ballot.
I love the examples she gives of what Leverett, Goshen, Whatley, Sunderland, Conway, and Deerfield have done with their CPA money - these types of projects would be great for our Village.
