CPA gets second chance in Beverly


The city must allocate at least 10 percent of CPA money each year to each of the three categories of open space, historic preservation and affordable housing. Expenditures are recommended by a nine-member local committee that must include members of the city’s recreation, conservation and historic commissions and Planning Board, and one member advocating for affordable housing. The City Council approves all expenditures.
