    A committee has recommended funding 15 projects in the second year of the Community Preservation Act in Springfield, Massachusetts.

     The voter-approved CPA puts a surcharge on property tax bills to create a special fund to pay for projects involving historic preservation, open space, and housing.

     A committee annually reviews applications and makes recommendations to the City Council.

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