Part of the challenge for the committee is to insure that projects meet the criteria of the CPA legislation, and to track changes in the legislation. Please see our handy chart to determine if a project is eligible for CPA funds.
The best and most complete source of information on the CPA can be found on the website of the Community Preservation Coalition, a non-profit advocacy group for the legislation.
The Belchertown planning documents most relevant to CPA legislation are available online.
The Belchertown Conservation Commission website has the Open Space and Recreation Plan.
