What is the CPA tax that appears on my tax bill?

The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a tool to help communities preserve open space and historic sites, and create affordable housing and recreational facilities. Town Meeting voted to move from the 3% Land Bank tax to the 3% CPA tax due to the expanded uses of the CPA and the matching money that is available from the State. The CPA tax is 3% of your total real estate tax.
