Good morning PPRTA:


Ok so below is jam packed with some stuff. So here we go.


1- Local Comprehensive Plan:

We begin by thanking Ginny Binder, the Chair of the LCPC, for Zooming with us last month. Madam Chair provided us an overview of the draft Local Comprehensive Plan -- the plan mapping out the future of Provincetown.  A video of this conversation is available on our websiteBut most important, please take a moment to review the plan and send comments to the town planner, Thaddeus Soule.  This an opportunity to express your opinion on the future of our beautiful Town.


2- Our next Zoom discussion, Tuesday August 2 at 6pm:
PPRTA is hosting another zoom presentation this upcoming Tuesday, August 2 @ 6pm.  DPW engineer, Jim Vincent will go over the plan to sewer the entire town. Town-wide sewer is something part-time and local residents alike have consistently indicated is important and vital to protecting the Town's environment and natural beauty.  "Stop by" with questions in hand.
When:    Tuesday Aug 2 @  6pm

Where:   Zoom

Who:      Jim Vincent, DPW Engineer

What:     Discuss the proposed sewer expansion

Why:      Town-wide sewer is an investment in our town's future

Now is the time to get informed. Start by taking a look at this cool map.




3-You know you might be able to vote in Provincetown:

The Sewer Expansion and the Local Comprehensive Plan both require a majority vote at Town Meeting.  These two items alone are great reasons to vote in Provincetown. You might consider registering to vote in Provincetown. If you are already a resident of Massachusetts, the decision is even easier. Check to see if you qualify. You can register online and you might be able to vote by mail/absentee.


4--Meanwhile, Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla:

 Swim For LIfe is just around the corner, Saturday, September 10, @11am. This year, like last year, the swim route will be along the East End shoreline, starting at the Breakwater and Harbor Hotels and ending at the Cannery Wharf Park (across from The Captain's Daughters).  PPRTA members have been in past swimmers, kayakers, and on the shore volunteers.  As we approach the 35th Swim For Life, Jay Critchley (Founder/Director of the Swim) has asked if PPRTA would like to form an official team (swimmers, kayakers, volunteers). If interested, please let me know.
