#30benefitsofcpaforFranklin - Affordable housing

One of the major community needs in our town is for housing choices that match the actual needs of residents. 

#CPA can help Franklin answer those needs and provide targeted choices that help people:
  • Funding for senior housing can help shorten the THREE YEAR waiting list.
  • Funding for needed family housing can shorten the painfully long waiting list for larger units.
  • Funding for all types of affordable housing could create veterans housing and units for people who need accessible units.
Please be part of the larger community and Vote YES on Question 3!

#30benefitsofcpaforfranklin - parks and recreation

Parks are a wonderful community asset and help us connect with each other. How do new residents or new parents connect with others? Franklin new moms still go out to tot lots and playgrounds to get their kids outdoors and meet other moms. 

Today the #NasonStreet playground is named in honor of #HenrySkiFaenza and the equipment has been refurbished. The beautiful maple trees are still gorgeous in fall.

#30benefitsofcpaforfranklin - historical preservation

CPA funds an be used to protect and preserve not only historic buildings, but also the artifacts, photographs, period clothing in our museum's collections. 

The CPA has proven to be a way to maintain that elusive "community character" all around the state, in the 177 cities and towns which have adopted it. 

Many thanks to the volunteers at our Franklin Historical Museum and to the members of the Historical Commission who provided these photos.

Representative Jeffrey N. Roy - Supports the Community Preservation Act (CPA)

Representative Jeffrey N. Roy (D-Franklin)
 “I strongly support question 3 and urge people to vote yes in favor of the Community Preservation Act (CPA).  A yes vote will allow Franklin to raise money that can be used to acquire, create and preserve open space, historic resources, community housing, and for recreational use. It also includes a significant State matching fund, which provides millions of additional dollars for CPA communities. It’s an effective investment that will make life better for our residents, and help with initiatives that build community, promote housing stability, and provide support for people of all ages."
