The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a Massachusetts state law passed in 2000 that allows the community to collect additional taxes that are matched by the state. This act is required to be voted into effect by each locality and was recently voted upon in Milton with an over 60% favorability rate. The funds collected create a dedicated pool to be drawn on for open space preservation, preservation of historic resources, development of affordable housing and the acquisition and development of outdoor recreational facilities.
