The Yarmouth Community Preservation Committee (CPC) was created in April 2005.
The CPC consists of nine voting members. Seven members represent existing committees from the Affordable Housing Committee, Conservation Commission, Historical Commission, Open Space Committee, Planning Board, Recreation Commission, and the Yarmouth Housing Authority. The two remaining seats are citizen-at-large positions appointed by the Board of Selectmen.
The Committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to Town Meeting for funding for community housing, historic, open space, and recreation projects.
