Community Preservation Committee Releases Public Input Survey

Community Preservation Committee Releases Public Input Survey


PITTSFIELD, Mass. – The Community Preservation Committee has released a public input survey as part of its efforts related to the development of a Community Preservation Plan.

The survey has been designed to be completed in less than five minutes, with the ability to provide substantive input, if desired. The deadline for input is Nov. 20.

The results of the survey will be incorporated into an overall plan that will assist the committee in decision making as to the allocations of Community Preservation Act funds.  The committee plans to complete this work by early 2018.

The plan is a required step that allows the community to develop priorities in how Community Preservation Act funds are spent within four allotted categories: parks, open space, historic preservation, and community housing.

A link to the survey is located on the home page of the city’s website,, and through the Community Preservation Committee’s page also through the city’s website.  Paper copies will also be made available for pickup/drop-off through the Department of Community Development.
