At the conclusion of the Public Forum, the CPC will select project finalists and will begin work on a budget proposal and the drafting of warrant articles for presentation at the 2004 Annual Town Meeting. All recommendations for funding will require approval at Town Meeting. All expenditures will come from the Community Preservation Act fund.
