MARION — Applications for Community Preservation Act funding are now available in the Town Clerk’s office at the Marion Town House located at 2 Spring Street, Marion.

Eligible projects must be directed towards: open space/recreation, historic preservation or community housing. Applications must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Feb. 10, 2023 to be considered for presentation at the May 2023
Annual Town Meeting.

Past Community Preservation funds have been used to: design of an accessible boardwalk and viewing platform at Osprey Marsh, restore the Marion Town House, purchase and install inclusive playground equipment at the Sippican School, install fencing, ADA-compliant benches and litter receptacles at the Benjamin D. Cushing Community Park and catalog the collections and restoring exhibits at the Marion Natural History Museum.
