About the CPA

The CPA is a special City fund reserved for capital improvement projects related to open space/recreation and historic preservation, and for projects that help to create or support affordable housing. Since Somerville residents voted to adopt the CPA in 2012, CPA funds have supported improvements at 50 unique sites throughout the city. Recent projects include renovating the West Branch Library, Somerville Community Growing Center, Prospect Hill Park, and Lou Ann David Park; preserving the former church that houses the Somerville Hispanic Association in East Somerville; and installing an elevator at the Somerville Museum.
