After seven robust months of Community Planning the Town of Provincetown alongside design firm Weston & Sampson is happy to present the Motta Field Master Plan! 

Since 2022, the Provincetown Recreation Commission and the Motta Field Working Group have been working diligently to turn Motta Field into an upgraded athletic facility as a space that can be enjoyed by all! Design firm Weston & Sampson,  took on the project and with a robust community planning process created the preferred concept plan for Motta Field as seen below.

On this site you will find an overview of the project including how it got started, what community events took place and what the final preferred design looks like today. For a more detailed summary check out the Motta Field Master Plan!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT at Special Town Meeting, October 23, 2023! The following article below was passed with no opposition. 

At Special Town Meeting, the Town is seeking funding for the next phase of design and development of the creation of construction documents for Motta Field.

Article 4.   Funding for Motta Field Design Development & Construction Documents.
This article appropriates $250,000 to cover the next phase of design and development costs for Motta Field, including the creation of construction documents. This will provide necessary details and a more specific cost estimate that will inform our funding ask for the reconstruction of Motta Field at 2024 Annual Town Meeting. 

The Provincetown 2022 Annual Town Meeting approved $100,000.00 from Community Preservation funds to complete a master plan for the future of Motta Field. A working group comprised of members from the Recreation Commission, Board of Health, School Committee, Selectboard, and four abutters were formed to initiate the planning process. The Master Plan has been completed as of July 1, 2023, and outlines the eight-month community planning process. The community planning process consisted of public engagement that defined the preferred design, which has been recommended to the town as part of the master plan.  The preferred plan reflects the community goals as set forth in this process which are: providing accessibility, connectivity, providing multigenerational active and passive recreation for all, while providing flexible space that can host community events. 

One of the goals for this project was to line up the Motta Field updates with the sewer expansion project. Aligning both projects could result in the Town of Provincetown saving a significant amount of money and time. However, to have the best success of aligning the projects, this final design work must be initiated as soon as possible.
