The Community Preservation Act Committee, which uses city property tax money (and matching state money) to buy or create and maintain open space, affordable housing and historic buildings, meets Tuesday.

The agenda includes funding and scheduling issues, said Nancy Schlacter, one of nine residents and officials on the committee.

The Community Preservation Act was put in place in 2001, allowing Massachusetts communities to levy a communitywide property tax surcharge of up to 3 percent to create a local fund qualifying for state matching funds.

The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. in the Ackermann Room at at Cambridge City Hall, 795 Massachusetts Ave. For information, call (617) 349-4302.
