The other fi re took place at 22-24 Durso Ave. (Photos courtesy of Damian Drella) ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Community Preservation Act funding To the Editor: But our ability to fund future M alden made a smart choice investing in our community’s future by adopting the Community Preservation Act (CPA) in 2015. It allows cities to collect a surcharge on property tax bills – just 1%, in our case – to fund aff ordable housing, historic preservation, open space and recreation. Because of the CPA, Maldonians may soon see improvements to Fellsmere Pond, the Malden River, Trafton Park, the Oak Grove Community Center, community gardens and more. North Shore Black Women’s Assoc. to host Open House – April 17 he North Shore Black Women’s Association will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, April 17, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at Anthony’s (105 Canal St. in Malden). All interested parties are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Iodiah Henry at (617) 605-2528. T projects may be at risk. Local dollars are matched by a CPA Trust Fund, which is funded through recording fees at the Registries of Deeds. That match has dwindled from 100% to just 11%. If we don’t do something to shore up this funding, Malden won’t be able to leverage our local dollars to help our parks and people. Luckily, Sen. Creem and Rep. Ferrante have introduced S.1618 and H.2463, An Act to Preserve Community Preservation Revenue, which would increase the match to over 40% SABATINOINSURANCE AGENCY in 2020 through a one-time increase in the Registries of Deeds recording fees, which haven’t been raised in almost 20 years. The bill has over 130 co-sponsors, including our own Representatives Paul Donato and Stephen Ultrino and our State Senator Jason Lewis. The CPA is too important to Malden’s future. Please join me in letting our legislators know that you support their eff orts to fi x the match!
