New Requests Made For Community Preservation Act Funding In Springfield


     Requests have been made to pay for a variety of historic preservation, open space, and housing projects from a taxpayer supplied fund in Springfield, Massachusetts.

    25 applications were submitted by last Friday’s deadline for funding in Springfield under the Community Preservation Act.

    Springfield voters adopted it in 2017.  The money comes from a surcharge on property tax bills.

    WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Bob McCarroll, the chair of the Springfield Community Preservation Committee.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
