The Commission began meeting in mid-May 2016. Meetings have been recorded for viewing on

Provincetown TV (local access). The Commission held an initial Public Hearing on June 15, 2016, and a final Public Hearing on September 26, 2017, as required by the law, and held several additional Public Forums. The Commission met with members of the Board of Selectmen, the Town Manager and Administrative Staff, the Moderator and the Finance Committee, and other Town Boards, and also reviewed other Towns' Charters. The changes we have made do not represent any significant change to the form of government as represented in the existing Charter. We have focused on making the organization more logical, combining related chapters, and simplifying the language.
