The Community Housing Council was established at the April 2007 Special Town Meeting council to oversee the Provincetown Housing Office; to perform all of the functions of the Provincetown Local Housing Partnership, and to administer the Affordable Housing Trust. View the Council's page here.
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 Director works with 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.
