Fall River adopts the Community Preservation Act
In 2012, the Preservation Society of Fall River, under Alfred Lima’s guidance and tutelage, led an ambitious awareness campaign drive for Fall River to adopt the Community Preservation Act. That year, Fall River became the first Gateway City in Massachusetts to adopt it.
Each year the CPA creates more than $1 million to be available for Fall River’s open park space, historic preservation, recreation, and community housing. In the past few years CPA has paid for more than 50 incredible city projects that could not have otherwise have been achieved. CPA in Fall River is governed by city’s Community Preservation Committee.
