The CPA informational session is an important opportunity for prospective applicants to gather helpful information on the program and application process, learn about the CPC’s procedures and expectations regarding applications, and gain feedback from the CPC on their potential project. The CPC looks forward to working with Town committees, Town officials, and non-profit groups who wish to help preserve Concord with projects in the areas of community housing, historic preservation, open space or recreation.
