PR for the Police Station
Voters will have five opportunities to learn about the need for a new police station.
Town meeting must decide on April 4 whether to appropriate another $8.5 million for a new station. Voters in 2017 already raised $8.6 million, which turned out not to be enough. An attempt by town officials to get a supplemental $3.9 million at the 2019 town meeting failed.
Construction prices have since soared, and the police station is still housed in a former funeral home that officials say is too small and inadequate, so the Provincetown Building Committee is trying again. The committee has a website with all the details of the proposal, newpolicestation.com, and a plan for several outreach events to pitch the project, according to a press release from the town.
On Friday, March 18 at 9 a.m., Town Manager Alex Morse and building committee members Sheila McGuinness and Jeff Mulliken will talk to the hosts of the morning show “Wake Up! in Provincetown,” which can be viewed on FaceBook.
On Monday, March 21 at 5 p.m., there will be a town meeting community forum at town hall where the public can ask about the police station and other town meeting articles.
On Wednesday, March 23 at 3 p.m. the building committee will hold a public hearing.
On Tuesday, March 29, building committee vice chair Paul Kelly and Mulliken will make a presentation to the Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association. This event is limited to “guests invited by PPRTA only,” according to the town’s press release.
On Saturday, April 2 from 1 to 3 p.m. there will be an open house at the Provincetown Police Station, with tours and a chance to ask questions. —K.C. Myers
