As part of its effort to provide Annual Town Meeting voters the information needed for an informed vote ahead of the April 4th Town Meeting, the Provincetown Building Committee has launched a new website and plan several outreach events on the proposed new police station.
The new website launched last week and can be seen at https://newpolicestation.com. The interactive website is designed to enable voters to get comprehensive details at their leisure, as well as the opportunity to pose questions and get answers on subjects ranging from interior police programming spaces, to costs and tax implications, to site plans, and current events.
In addition, Building Committee members have already begun community outreach in recent weeks. Last Thursday, Lisa Westervelt and Jeff Mulliken met with residents of Seashore Point to discuss the proposed police station building project, and this past Saturday March 12th, Building Committee members and Select Board member Louise Venden hosted a table at the Year Rounders Festival at Town Hall, promoting the project and answering questions from residents in attendance.
Looking ahead, the Committee invites you to join them at the following events:
Friday, March 18th at 9:00am: Wake Up! in Provincetown
Town Manager Alex Morse and Building Committee members Sheila McGuinness and Jeff Mulliken join hosts Bob Keary & Harrison Fish for chit-chat about the new police station.
