Editor's Note: CPC was established after Stockbridge adopted the Community Preservation Act in 2002 to oversee disbursements from the Community Preservation Funds. The Committee makes recommendations to Town Meeting, which must approve all expenditures. Stockbridge has received more than $2 million in matching state funds since 2002.
