Preservation, Rehabilitation and Restoration of "Historic Resources"

"Historic resources" are defined as a building, structure, vessel or real property that is listed or eligible for listing on the state register of historic places or has been detemined by the Historical Commission to be significant in the history, archeology, architecture or culture of Northfield. Community Preservation funds may be used for the preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historic resources (including Town-owned historic resources), but not for routine maintenance. Investment in historic resources must be protected by a permanent historic preservation restriction and must provide public benefit. Funds can be used to repair churches and cemeteries that are "historic resources."
