Forum Scheduled On Preservation Act Ballot Question

Sep 12, 2016

Restoring the Italian Campanile clock tower in downtown Springfield, Ma is a project that might receive funding if voters approve a referendum in November adopting the Community Preservation Act.

      A political advocacy group has registered in Massachusetts to campaign for passage of a property tax increase in Springfield to fund historic preservation and parks and playground projects. 

              The new organization, Springfield CPAdvocacy, is holding a public forum at 6:30 p.m. today at the Business Growth Center at the Springfield Technology Park.   

      Robert McCarroll is president of the new committee that is campaigning for Springfield voters to approve a referendum on this November’s ballot to adopt the state Community Preservation Act. He spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
