Community Preservation Committee Moves Projects To Next Phase

The Community Preservation Committee voted to move 29 projects through to the next phase of review at its Oct. 1 meeting, where the eligibility of each application was discussed.

Committee members determined which of the state’s Community Preservation Act criteria — affordable housing, historic preservation, or open space and recreation — applied to each project. Applicants voted through will move on to the funding phase in early 2020, where they’ll go over details and make the case for each project.

The public projects moving forward for fiscal year 2021 are:

  • Bank Street Armory
  • Kennedy Park Men’s Warming House
  • Kennedy Park Tennis Courts
  • Oak Grove Cemetery Gatehouse
  • Boat Ramp & Bicentennial Park
  • Fall River School Administration Building
  • Barnabas Blossom Workshop Restoration
  • Quequechan River Rail Trail Rodman Street Annex
  • Bioreserve Conservation Land Acquisition Readiness Project 2021
  • Preserving Spence Moacomber Farm
  • Preserving Fall River’s Small Rural Cemeteries
  • Restoration of the 1873 Waterworks Stable
  • Mystery Stone Relocation
  • Preservation of Historic Dall River Water Department Documents
  • Securing Article 97 Protection for Open Space Parcel Omitted From Bioreserve Conservation Restrictions
  • Preserving the Watuppa Native American Legacy

The private projects moving forward for fiscal year 2021 are:

  • Little Theatre
  • Trolley Building
  • Corky Row Club
  • Cherry & Webb Building
  • Adams House
  • Fall River Fire Museum
  • Maritime Museum
  • 36-56 Water Street
  • Lafayette-Durfee House
  • 77 Freedom Street Fire/Police Station
  • Eagle Event Center
  • Niagara Quequechan Greenway

Three projects were determined to not meet the state’s criteria and therefore were not eligible for CPA monies. Those projects were from the King Phillip Yacht Club, Weaver’s Cove Recreation Facilities, and Daylighting Quequechan River. The 234 Purchase Street Barn project was withdrawn by the applicant.
