Dear Friends and Neighbors,
My name is Marcia Pereira, and I am in favor of the Community Preservation Act. Please vote YES on Article 4 on or by November 3rd.
As a long-time town meeting member, I feel the Community Preservation Act (CPA) is good for our community. Affordable housing has been a perennial topic at town meeting. CPA can help Shrewsbury create and support low income housing for our residents, especially our senior citizens.
I have been a Shrewsbury resident for over 40 years. I moved here from Newport, RI where history and preservation are part of everyday life. For example, historic markers on landmarks may seem like a small thing, but they connect us to the past and each other as we share our hometown heritage. I would like to expand the preservation of our town’s culture in a responsible, affordable way by accessing funds from the Community Preservation Act.
I value the outdoors. Nature is beautiful. I want to preserve and improve the outdoor spaces in our town. As a founding member of the Friends of Prospect Park, I understand the need for additional resources to protect and preserve open spaces and provide recreation facilities for all of us to enjoy. I value the local, open outdoor spaces Shrewsbury has to offer. COVID-19 pandemic restrictions continue to teach me to cherish these places.
Vote YES for the Community Preservation Act on or by November 3. Thank you!
Town Meeting Member
