Community Preservation Committee

In FY'13 the Community Preservation Committee and Town Council approved funding for a Historical Perservation Plan for the Town of Randolph. To view the Randolph Preservation Plan and Appendix final report, please click on the links listed below.


The Community Preservation Act (hereafter referred to as “CPA”), M.G.L. c. 44B, allows Massachusetts cities and towns to raise monies through a surcharge of up to 3% of the real estate tax levy on real property.  In November 2004, Town Meeting voted a 2% annual real estate levy against real property which was ratified at the Annual Town Election April 5, 2005.  Town Meeting accepted two exemptions from this surcharge as permitted by law: an exemption of $100,000 of the value of each taxable parcel of residential real property and an exemption for low income.    

These CPA funds are to be used for four core purposes: to acquire, create and preserve open space; to acquire, rehabilitate, restore and preserve historic resources; to create, preserve and support community housing; and to acquire, preserve and utilize land for recreational use.  A minimum of 10% of the annual revenues of the fund must be appropriated for each of the three core community concerns. The remaining 70% can be allocated for any combination of the allowed uses, or for land for recreational use.
