Thanks to the the Community Preservation Act funding six Dorchester projects have been recommended for funding approval by Mayor Marty Walsh.  The lucky six include the Sip & Spoke Bike Kitchen in Upham’s Corner, the Talbot Commons housing development, Arx Urban Development’s Jones Hill/Savin Hill project, Hemenway Playground reno, Talbot-Norfolk Triangle Children’s Garden and the Lemuel Clap and William Clapp Houses! 

To refresh your memory, back in 2016 we voted in favor of the Community Preservation Act which levies a $1 percent surcharge on property taxes to help fund community projects.

According to the Boston Globe, an opening list of projects include a dock for a sailing program in Southie to an urban farm in Hyde Park, in addition to the ones in Dorchester.  There are 35 total project recommended for $8 million in funding.
