When Malden adopted the Community Preservation Act (CPA) in November 2015, the city joined 159 other communities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts dedicated to improving their cities and quality of life through the preservation and rehabilitation of open space, land for recreational use, historic preservation, and community housing, through a local 1 percent surcharge.
As part of their ongoing community outreach, Malden’s Community Preservation Committee is holding their second public informational hearing on March 27, and invites the residents of Malden to attend.
The hearing will allow those in attendance a chance to learn how the CPC works to improve their community and share thoughts about what types of projects would most benefit Malden for the 2020 funding cycle.
The meeting will take place 7 p.m. at the Senior Center, 7 Washington St., Malden.
Malden’s CPC was officially formed on Feb. 28, 2017 and this year the CPC recommended eight community projects to the City Council for funding in 2019.
