About the CPC

The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a state-authorized funding mechanism for local open space, historic preservation, outdoor recreation, and community housing initiatives.


The Town Manager has released the draft of Bridgewater's Downtown Revitalization Plan. Please click here to review the plan.


The Town of Bridgewater's Community Preservation Committee (CPC) is updating their plan to guide Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds over the next five years. The CPC would like your input as a community stakeholder to help determine goals and priorities in the four CPA funding categories: (1) recreation; (2) community housing; (3) historic preservation; and (4) open space.

Join us for a small focus group with our planning consultant, Anna Callahan of JM Goldson LLC.
