I write to invite you to renew your PPRTA membership for 2022.
The Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association is a 100% volunteer-run organization of concerned homeowners and taxpayers, like you, whose economic and cultural contributions to Provincetown are vital to the preservation and sustainability of the town. We Educate, Advocate, and Build community for our members.
We Educate our members through our newsletters, and with our frequent seminars, zoom events and discussions on a variety of relevant topics. This year alone we’ve discussed the sewer expansion, the Local Comprehensive Plan, the police station plan, and broadband.
We Advocate for our members on the topics you told us are important to you by speaking at public hearings and working with local government officials. When appropriate, we comment at Select Board meetings and several members participate on local committees.
We strive to Build Community by giving our members opportunities to volunteer with local groups and providing social gatherings to meet and network with each other and our neighbors. We support local businesses with our Community Partners Program. We partnered with The Compact and with Friends of Provincetown Parks and Gardens, and we provide weekly social meets at the Provincetown Brewing Company. Later this summer PPRTA will announce a new annual award program to acknowledge contributions of individuals who helped create a better and more vibrant community.
