QUESTION #1

Shall the Town of Hopkinton amend the vote taken on Question 1 of the May 21, 2001, Annual Town Election, by deleting from that vote the following sentence:

The Town shall spend, or set aside for later spending, not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for open space, but not including land for recreational use; not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for historic resources; not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for community housing; not less than 50% of the annual revenues of the Fund for open space, including passive recreational use; with the remaining 20% of the annual revenues of the Fund to be for any of the above purposes as well as for open space, including land for recreational uses.

and inserting in its place the following sentence:

The Town shall spend, or set aside for later spending, not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for open space, but not including land for recreational use; not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for historic resources; not less than 10% of the annual revenues of the Fund for community housing; not less than 50% of the annual revenues of the Fund for open space, including recreational use; with the remaining 20% of the annual revenues of the Fund to be for any of the above purposes as well as for open space, including land for recreational uses.

thereby requiring that not less than 50% of the annual revenues of the Community Preservation Fund be spent or set aside for open space, including both passive and active recreational uses?
