Provincetown Harbor is an attractive focus of activity for the entire community which surrounds it. The Harbor area is a complex place that requires public attention to ensure appropriate use and a clean environment. The Provincetown Harbor Plan establishes practical steps to meet these goals. This Plan values the present character and activities within the Harbor area. Rather than seeking dramatic changes, the objective of the Plan is to enhance the Harbor through better management and by accomplishing a list of coordinated improvements.
The Plan envisions a future Provincetown Harbor with substantially greater access and a more pleasant character along the waterfront for all of its users. The Plan calls for many small scale improvements, each planned and designed with respect for the special qualities of its particular circumstances and the uses which will be served.
