The Hamilton Community Preservation Committee is looking for opinions from town residents about Community Preservation Act spending via a survey ahead of a public hearing scheduled for later this month.
May 22 is the deadline to complete the survey, according to Community Projects Coordinators Dorr Fox. Hard copies of the survey are available at the Town’s Clerk office at Hamilton Town Hall in addition to the online version at Survey Gizmo. The nine-question survey asks residents their opinion about things such as using Community Preservation Act money for open space, recreational facilities, affordable housing and preservation of historic resources and whether they support increasing the CPA surcharge from 2% to 3%.
The results will be tabulated on May 23, in advance of the public hearing, which will happen on Tuesday, May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, 14 Union St. in Hamilton.
The public hearing is designed to get public input about future grants awarded Community Preservation Act money.
