News

At its 6 April 2017 meeting, the CPC agreed to consider an off-cycle full proposal for the Auburn Street [Auburndale] housing & historic preservation project. This proposal is now due for posting on this site by approximately May 1st, for a CPC public hearing & potential funding vote on May 31st.

Upcoming Meetings

NEW SCHEDULE for MAY 2017: The CPC's next meeting has been moved from May 11 to Wednesday, 31 May 2017 (7 pm, City Hall Room 204). Requests for time on this agenda and written materials for the pre-meeting packet are due by 15 May 2017.

Agenda requests and pre-meeting materials for the CPC meeting on 8 June 2017 are still due by 22 May 2017.

Deadlines and dates for later CPC meetings are available from our Calendar link.

Fy18 Funding Deadlines

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 of projects aimed at the Fy18 funding round

  • were required to contact staff by 3 April 2017 to request an in-person orientation meeting and to submit a pre-proposal by 1 May 2017, for discussion at one of the CPC's regular public meetings.
  • If the CPC invites submission of a full proposal, based on its pre-proposal discussion,  the full proposal will be due by 2 October 2017.

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.
