Our Priorities

The PPRTA Board of Directors and volunteers attend the Provincetown Select Board meetings and various other committee meetings to keep abreast of local government issues of importance to part-time property owners. Volunteers and board members also monitor local and regional print and media coverage to identify issues of interest to part-time property owners.

The PPRTA Board of Directors routinely surveys membership to gauge the relative importance of these matters to members. The PPRTA Board of Directors utilizes the data gathered from the aforementioned efforts to determine the organization’s priorities.

2. Join the PPRTA. Every member counts.


3. Tell your part-time resident neighbors and friends to join. 


4. Educate your full-time neighbors on why this unfair Residential Tax Exemption policy must change. Explain that part-time residents seek to vote on budget-related matters.
