Since its inception in 1999, the Peconic Bay Regional Community Preservation Fund has generated $1.933 billion. The CPF has generated $201 million in the last 12 months.
Thiele stated, “Real estate activity is less than a year ago. However, CPF revenues in 2022 remain at historically high levels when compared to revenues before the pandemic. Revenues for the first seven months of 2022 are the second highest for the first seven months in the 24-year history of the program (except 2021).
