Preservation Month 2002
The Stoneham Historical Commission and the Stoneham Historical Society jointly sponsored a public informational meeting recently at the Historical Society Museum to commemorate Preservation Month. The topic was entitled "Community Preservation Act (CPA) - Yes or No for Stoneham". The special guest speaker was Christopher Saccardi an expert on the CPA who works with the Community Preservation Coalition, a coalition of housing, historic preservation, and open space non-profits that supports communities in their efforts to better understand and possibly adopt and implement the CPA.
