Working to save what we love about Dighton
Vote YES on Question 1, April 10, 2010
The Community Preservation Act is a highly successful state law that has enabled 142 cities and towns to protect their history and natural resources and create community housing. Since its inception in 2000, the CPA has helped communities preserve over 8,000 acres of open space, fund over 1,300 housing units, fund over 350 recreation projects and make over 700 appropriations for historic preservation. Through the CPA the state of Massachusetts has given out $330 million dollars to the city and towns that have passed the CPA. To date not one dollar of this money has been spent in Dighton. Why not? Dighton has not passed the CPA. How can we change this? We can change this by passing the CPA on April 10, 2010.
The Community Preservation is helping to make positive changes in the towns that have passed the CPA. The goal of this web page is to educate the residents of Dighton Massachusetts about the benefits of passing the Community Preservation Act. By passing this law the town will be able to preserve its natural and historic places, improve recreational opportunities and create community housing.
