The main agenda item is a PUBLIC HEARING on proposed revisions to funding guidelines in Newton's Community Preservation Plan, including:
The required first steps in the funding process are an in-person orientation meeting with staff and discussion of a short pre-proposal with the CPC at one of its regular public meetings.
Sponsors are strongly encouraged to request orientation meetings and submit pre-proposals well ahead of the deadlines for their target funding round. The CPC has more time for thoughtful discussion of early pre-proposals, which can also help the Committee consider reserving current funds for future use.
