  • The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a smart growth tool that helps communities preserve open space and historic sites, create affordable housing, and develop outdoor recreational facilities. CPA also helps strengthen the local economies by expanding housing opportunities and construction jobs and by supporting the tourism industry through preservation of the Commonwealth's historic and natural resources. Signed into law in 2000, CPA allows communities to create a local Community Preservation Fund for open space protection, historic preservation, affordable housing and outdoor recreation. Community preservation monies are raised locally as well as from distributions made each year from the statewide Community Preservation Trust Fund, administered by the Department of Revenue (DOR), which provides distributions each year to communities that have adopted CPA. While communities traditionally rely on property taxes to fund the day-to-day operating needs of safety, health, schools, roads, maintenance, and more, until CPA was enacted, there was no steady funding source for preserving and improving a community's character and quality of life. The Community Preservation Act gives the community the funds needed to control its future in these areas.

    Each CPA community creates a local Community Preservation Committee (CPC) upon adoption of the Act, and this board makes recommendations on CPA projects to the Mayor and the City Council. The current members of the Peabody Community Preservation Committee are:

  • Rules and Regulations Governing the Subdivision of Land

    The Peabody Planning Board oversees the Rules and Regulations Governing the subdivision of land in Peabody.

    These rules and regulations were adopted under the Subdivision Control Law, MGL Ch. 41, Section 81-K through 81-GG inclusive. The subdivision regulations were adopted for the purpose of protecting the safety, convenience and welfare of the residents of the City of Peabody by "regulating the laying out and constructions of ways in subdivisions providing access to the several lots therein, but which have not become public ways, and ensuring sanitary conditions in subdivisions and in proper cases, parks and open areas."

    The Planning Board acts on project proposals with due regard for the provision of: -adequate access to all of the lots in a subdivision by ways that will be safe and convenient for travel -for lessening congestion in such ways and in the adjacent public ways -for reducing danger of life and limb in the operation of motor vehicles -for securing safety in case of fire, flood, panic and other emergencies -for insuring compliance with the applicable Zoning ordinance -for securing adequate provision for water, sewerage, drainage, underground utility services, fire, police and other similar municipal equipment, and street lighting -and for coordinating the ways in a subdivision with each other and with the public ways in the City and with the ways in neighboring subdivisions

    The Planning Board is also part of the review process, through public hearing, for any changes to the Peabody Zoning Ordinance.
