Provincetown seeks town rep for Cape Cod Commission

Applicants must be able to attend meetings in Barnstable

The Town of Provincetown is seeking applicants for the vacant Cape Cod Commission Representative position. The town's appointed representative would be one of 19 Cape Cod Commission board members.

The board members are all citizen volunteers and serve in a "quasi-judicial" capacity. Each town appoints a representative to serve a three-year term. Members act as the liaison between their town and the commission and work with a staff of 40 people planning the Cape's future growth. In addition to the members appointed by the towns, the Barnstable County Commissioners appoint a County Commissioner, a Native American representative and a Minority Representative. The board also has a non-voting Governor's Appointee.

Applications are available at the Town Clerk's Office at Provincetown Town Hall. Completed applications must be returned to the Town Clerk by 12 p.m. on Friday, February 27. 

Candidates must be able to attend commission meetings in Barnstable. 

Information about the Cape Cod Commission and the work done by the board members is available in the "Roles and Responsibilities of Cape Cod Commission Members" brochure here. Provincetown is the only town on the Cape that does not currently have a representative. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
