Bike safety, green energy and year-round living top Provincetown's 2015 policy goals

Last month selectmen adopted the town-wide goals following a public meeting

Last month the Provincetown Board of Selectmen adopted and published a list of town-wide policy goals for Fiscal Year 2015. The selectmen voted in favor of the goals following a public hearing on July 28.

As outline in the FY 2015 policy goals, the town will be exploring several key topics including fiscal responsibility, transparency, bike safety and year-round living.

Year-round living is a topic that connects several of the goals including the development of year-round rental housing, and revised taxing to accommodate a year-round community, small businesses and year-round businesses.

The town will also look into infrastructure and energy development that will foster a year-round economy.

Parking and traffic studies are planned. Bicycle studies are also planned and include seeking recommendations for better integrating bike routes on roadways and connecting Provincetown to points in the Cape Cod National Seashore and in Truro via paths that will be safe and convenient for bicyclists.

In addition to going green on two wheels, the town will look into encouraging sustainable energy generation through the deployment of both solar and wind energy sources.
