Shall the Town of Littleton accept the Community Preservation Act pursuant to §3(b½) of chapter 44B of the General Laws, as approved by the November 4, 2013 Special Town Meeting, a summary of which appears below?
YES 891; NO 555; BLANKS 193
Summary: The Town has accepted Sections 3 to 7, inclusive, of Chapter 44B of the General Laws, commonly known as the Community Preservation Act, by its votes at the May 12, 2007 and May 11, 2013 Annual Town Elections. Pursuant to these votes, there is a 1 percent (1%) surcharge on the annual tax levy for all classes of real property, with exemptions for the first $100,000 of value of class one residential, class three commercial property and class four industrial property as defined in MGL Chapter 59, section 2A, and for property owned and occupied as a domicile by any person who qualifies for low income housing or low or moderate income senior housing in the Town, as defined in Section 2 of said Act.
This ballot question proposes to reauthorize the surcharge of 1 percent (1%) and the exemptions previously approved under MGL Chapter 44B, section 3, and to further approve appropriation to the Community Preservation Fund of additional municipal revenues pursuant to Section 3(b1/2) of Chapter 44B up to 2 percent (2%) of the taxes assessed annually on real property, effective for fiscal years beginning on or after July 1, 2014.
The question is approved and the Town’s acceptance of the Community Preservation Act is amended if a majority of the voters voting on the ballot question vote “yes.”
