The Community Preservation Act (CPA) is a state law designed to help communities plan ahead for sustainable growth. The CPA allows towns to levy a community-wide property tax surcharge of up to 3 percent for the purpose of creating a local Community Preservation Fund that can qualify for state matching funds. The Fund must be used to acquire and protect open space, preserve historic buildings and landscapes, and create and maintain affordable housing.

At the March 21, 2005 Special Town Meeting, the Town overwhelming voted to replace the existing Cape Cod Open Space Land Acquisition Program with the Community Preservation Act. In order to implement this Act, the Town established a Community Preservation Committee that will make recommendations to the Board of Selectmen and Town Meeting for the use of CPA funds.

The Sandwich Community Preservation Committee is comprised of four members at large appointed by the Board of Selectmen, one member of, and as designated by, the Conservation Commission, Historical Commission, Planning Board, Housing Authority, and Recreation Committee with initial staggered terms, and three years terms thereafter.
