Reason for the First Amended and Restated Development Agreement: 

The Development Agreement and relevant exhibits were amended to reflect changes resulting from the Canton Community Preservation Committee vote to recommend that Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds be used to purchase 6.85 acres of open space for community purposes for $1,740,000 instead of 5.2 acres of open space for $1,380,000, as originally agreed with the developer. 

In conjunction with having the right to acquire an additional 1.65 acres of open space, the amendments reconfigure the location of proposed residences so that the Town-owned community open space is further separated from the residences. 

The 6.85 acres of proposed CPA-funded open space, when combined with the 2.2 acres the developer has agreed to grant to the Town, will result in approximately 9 acres of Town-owned open space at the Paul Revere Heritage Site.
