Thanks to the the Community Preservation Act funding, two South Boston projects have been recommended for funding approval by Mayor Marty Walsh including a historic memorial.
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.
Here are the projects approved for South Boston
$150,000 to Barnard Place to create a small park with planting beds, benches, and a bocce court
$75,000 to the Kearsarge Memorial in Marine Park to replace the crumbling base and missing interpretive plaque, and restore the 1898 anchor honoring naval veterans of the USS Kearsarge, a class of battleships including one active ship in service today
