Local Comprehensive Plan

Draft 2022 Local Comprehensive Plan

The overarching goals of the plan are: 

Develop creative housing options for rental or purchase that will support a thriving and diverse community that includes: 1) year-round residents of all ages, backgrounds, and income levels; 2) seasonal workers; and 3) long-term and short-term visitors.

Encourage the creation and diversification of year-round employment opportunities through both the expansion of existing economic sectors and the growth of emerging sectors; expand transportation options and decrease the carbon footprint while expanding connections to Provincetown for those who seek to live, work and visit Provincetown. 

Promote private development and public facilities that maintain the historic human and neighborhood scale, increases connectivity with the harbor and open lands, mitigates the effects of climate change all while developing increased housing options. 

Improve public health security for all residents by: 1) ensuring appropriate health and wellness services are available, including emergency care, mental health services, age-focused health services particularly for children and seniors, and providing diverse recreation options; 2) continuing to expand the municipal sewer to protect our residents, land, and coastal waters from the impacts of waste; and 3) emergency preparedness for all likely threats to life and property, including weather-related disasters and communicable diseases.
