For 15 years Christine Poff led the Franklin Park Coalition and started the Boston Park Advocates to helping bring attention to the city's open spaces. So it is very fitting that she was selected to be the director of the Community Preservation Committee. The newly established committee will lead Boston's use of funds provided by the Community Preservation Act (CPA). Last November Boston voters approved the adoption of Massachusetts CPS, which will generate millions of dollars to be used for the creation and acquisition of affordable housing, historic preservation, open space and recreation. “I am incredibly pleased to welcome Christine to this new role as director of the Community Preservation Committee, which will have an important role in ensuring that the funding captured through the CPA is re-invested in our communities,” said Mayor Martin Walsh via press release.
