Who controls the money?

After a town adopts the CPA, a local Community Preservation Committee is formed.  The committee must hold public meetings where citizens can suggest ways to spend the money.  The committee will make recommendations on how to spend the money at town meeting.  Here Dighton residents will be able to vote for or against the projects.
