William Epperson serves on the Conservation Preservation Committee as an Associate Commissioner of the Boston Parks and Recreation Commission. He lives in Jamaica Plain with his husband and two young children and has a strong appreciation for Boston’s public open space. William is excited to serve on the inaugural committee to strengthen Boston’s neighborhoods through the inclusive public investment of CPA funds in historic restoration, affordable housing, and parks and open space improvements.
In addition to his role on the Conservation Preservation Committee and Parks and Recreation Commission, as Assistant Director of Real Estate Management and Sales for the City of Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development, William strives to improve Boston’s neighborhoods through the strategic investment and development of the City’s surplus and tax-foreclosed real estate.
Since 2010, William has worked to leverage City-owned property to generate affordable housing, foster homeownership opportunities, create community gardens and urban farms, and preserve undeveloped open space throughout all of Boston’s neighborhoods.
