These historic preservation goals were created in partnership between Watertown’s Community Preservation Committee, Community Preservation Coordinator, and project consultants – and are based on public input received from the public forum held in January, the online survey and this website, and from stakeholder focus groups held in March. When finalized, these goals will be incorporated into the Community Preservation Plan and the CPC will use them as a general guide when considering applications for funding.


Watch the video to learn a bit more about CPA, this project, Watertown’s community context, and how these goals were created, as well as their purpose (the same video appears on every page).

Historic Preservation Goals

  3. Acquire and preserve underutilized, threatened, or abandoned privately-owned historic resources that demonstrate appropriate public benefits as required under the law.
  4. Enhance public access to historic resources, including ADA accessibility improvements.
  5. Support a combination of historic preservation and rehabilitation projects that highlight the diverse and varied historical periods and experiences of the Watertown community.
