Provincetown Housing Playbook

Under the direction of the Town Manager, Town Staff and the Housing Office has drafted the initial Provincetown Housing Playbook. The Housing Playbook is a living document, will evolve, and be updated on a regular basis. Essentially, the Playbook gathers all of the Town's tools and strategies into one document. There are three sections: traditional affordable housing, community housing, and seasonal workforce housing. The Housing Specialist is visiting many different boards & committees for input. The Town is expanding the conversation beyond the traditional affordable to include middle income and seasonal workers that are being squeezed out. Read a draft of the Housing Playbook (PDF) dated October 2016 and forward your comments and questions! A new draft is in the works.
