"The only one making money on that project is the town! The nonprofit has coughed up lots of cash for permit applications, lawyers, and consultants just to get the project approved by the town boards. We should have *given* that nonprofit the building rather than demanding rent."

Yes, yes yes!  Please give them the VFW too.  How silly to think the Town should keep it's buildings when you have people capable of taking them for free.  How dare we charge rent to Matk Hatch and his friends!

Re: Revised Zoning Bylaw

"Well, this sure makes things "clear":

"evidence DEEMED TO BE RELIABLE  by the zoning enforcement officer."

Get ready for lawsuits galore!! This is a huge responsibility for the town and will open all kinds of litigation based on the opinion of a person who may not be the same person years from now and then the opinion changes and changes every time a new building inspector/commissioner comes in. Very bad wording but hey, what are we to expect from the planner? Sad part is, the planning board follows every word she lays down. Why have a board?

Re: I Give David the Panagore One Month

I Agree

Goodby Panagore if you do not fire this inept woman as the town planner.

If you don't, I also believe you should go. How little courage you have. It would be hard to hire a DPW person with this little courage. they don't need courage--but a town manager should have at least a thimble of courage.

Wow. Nutsville. It is a scam and a shame and nothing good will come of this for any real artist. for the glammors-on, well then, a highlight of wackiness and a place to sell--oh, maybe something other than art? Maybe, just something for special people that remains il....... Just maybe.

If she is still working for you--yes, you Panagore--then you should be fired--not her.

It is in your hands. Try a little courage --this is not too much to ask of you.

We are just tired of this game. she is bad. Fire her and do it now.

Otherwise, then I don't care if they fire you. If you can't change the town. then please leave.

Another Glorian McPherson Disaster

David has No Idea whey 7-11 is closing.
 
Really? He has no idea? This is beyond ridiculous. Just look at what Gloria McPherson--his town Planner--forced 7-11 to do. They never legally needed to do anything. They had been Tedeschi's. It was a name change and corporate change. Nothing else happened.

But Panagore let loose this wacko job and now he has no idea why 7-11 would rather close their doors than deal with wack-job McPherson. Really David, this is beyond believable. You are not that naïve, my friend.

Revised Zoning Bylaw

Well, this sure makes things "clear":

"evidence DEEMED TO BE RELIABLE  by the zoning enforcement officer."

"on any lot exhibiting evidence of unauthorized fill, the zoning enforcement officer MAY require the applicant to provide a professional soil analysis to determine the natural grade."

Article 2 on the warrant, which reworded the zoning bylaws definition of natural grade, was also amended on the floor by of the meeting, at the request of Town Planner Gloria McPherson, to define it as the existing grade or elevation of the ground surface at the time of application for a building permit, special permit, variance or site plan approval, as shown on any plan or by any other evidence deemed to be reliable by the zoning enforcement officer in his/her discretion. The amendment added that, on any lot exhibiting evidence of unauthorized fill, the zoning enforcement officer may require the applicant to provide a professional soil analysis to determine the natural grade. The amended article was overwhelmingly approved.

Hilary's book tour tickets start at over $100 and go to over $8000. each.  How does this help the Democrats who's last name isn't Clinton?  It doesn't.  Only gives liberals a bone to chew on.  Sad really.  She's really just helping DT get 4 more years.  Money hungry.

Just because Gordon Siegel doesnt like the Community Center project doesnt turn it into a scam. The only one making money on that project is the town! The nonprofit has coughed up lots of cash for permit applications, lawyers, and consultants just to get the project approved by the town boards.

Re: Restaurant Drama

"Assumption? Not much of a stretch, really, given the race demographics in Provincetown. But this much I know: your posts positively drip with (white) male privilege"

Oh, hey! Well, since we're just making stuff up when it's convenient (yeah, I guess Trump has influenced your behavior too, lol,) why don't I just assume that since the waiter MUST be gay and white, the diner in question must be a wealthy second home owner with a trust fund eating an overpriced meal in a fancy restaurant who probably didn't tip.

So, you still maintain that the waiter, who works for tips, is the one operating from a point of privilege? That's rich (no pun intended.)

Anonymous online "activists" like yourself, who like to point fingers and invent narratives of victimhood, give real feminists a bad name. Go find something meaningful to do with your life.

Perfect Solution for Restaurant Drama



"Bitchy gay waiters existed long before Trump.

Long before Eisenhower. And yet, we're expected to treat them like stars and tip them up the wazoo. Great life, ain't it?"


I've got a perfect solution...if service is just plain bad....just don't tip. Tipping is indicative of a good experience....if you don't get one....don't give one!! If I don't get world class service, I leave a dollar.

Believe me service will improve....if we hit 'em in the wallet.

Re: Lord Help us! - We are so Screwed

Community Center to Creative Commons is a Give Away.....

and nothing much is happening. Better to have established workforce housing for 75 people then this scam. for $16,000 a year, they get this building and we pay the taxes and upkeep. It is a joke and this non-profit was not even a legal non-profit when they applied. And it had legally conflict of interest with Kristen hatch giving $100,000 in CPA funds to her cousin mark Hatch. she should have recused herself and the conflict of interest should have been reported statewide.

This has so little to do with the arts and artist space. It is, plain and simply, a scam and a money maker for some key people. this town can be so foolish that it is almost criminal.

Re: Lord Help us! - We are so Screwed

"Since we gave Hatch the Community Center and don't have a clue what to do the VFW..."
 
CORRECTION:  We didn't give the Community Center to Hatch.  We leased it to him and his "Non-profit" cronies for 99 years.  The Town will pay the taxes, and maintain the building for 99 years. No housing, just play rooms.

"I had a tour" 
 
You should have toured the contract the BOS signed where they gave away our asset, a housing asset.  Then the BOS told to get all the money they can from the Town while the Town pays for their play space.  Watch this years requests for "Historical Preservation."  i.e.: more taxpayer money at the ATM.  We've only just begun...98 more years of Hatch and friends using the building for their pleasure while the taxpayer's foot the bill. 

We are so screwed.  Another friend of Panagore getting theirs hands washed on the taxpayer dime.  Remember when Panagore wrote that the community center would be a great housing asset?  He should have written the truth " Stroke the foollish residents while I do whatever the F**K I want." D. Panagore.

I can't wait to see Version 3 of the Housing Playbook.  More fiction written by the TM on the taxpayer's dime.

I hate to have to tell all you loudmouths who keep telling these lies about the Community Center this but you didn't give anyone anything, and the organization was granted non-profit status only five weeks after it filed. How do I know this? Because I got a tour of the building and asked questions. Why do you keep posting lies? Because you listen to a certain couple of people who lie and don't know anything about what happened here. Btw, Hatch is a board member, so no one gave him anything. He was just one of the founders of the non-profit. How do I know that? Because I was shown the building by other board members and, again, I asked. So sorry, you're all just wrong. I also donated. Maybe some of you should take an interest in these things happening here and get off the computer once in a while, then you might find out the truth. You're just like the Trumpsters, listening to Rush, except your here commenting on things you know nothing about.

this is sad but this poor store was "vandalized" by the ridiculous Gloria McPherson barriers. Yeah, she is a town planner alright. she has no knowledge of planning and ended up killing business with this inane barriers that were dangerous and the entrance that was the worse design in town.

Tedeschi's

Depending on who's telling the story, the Town informed 7-11 that nearly $200,000 of curbing and landscaping work needed to be completed before interior design work could begin.  Due to loss of income from the removal of the gas tanks and those foolish barriers, 7-11 opted to close rather than sink that much money into the place.  Hopefully, it will rent out soon as we, the residents abutting the store, need a convenience store in our neighborhood.  Getting to Stop and Shop, even for just the basics, can be difficult for many of us, especially as Fall and Winter approach.

Also, the vote count to reconsider an increase for Resident Exemption can come up again now! That needs a full complement of the Board! One was absent! Even if one wasn't, it can be revisited again now! The new Town Clerk should know this! What the Hell is going on here? Does anybody know anything or do they make rules as they go?

Tedeschi's et Town Planner
 
"Discontinuing gas sales likely had a negative effect on the business at 7-11. I have a hard time believing the temporary barriers had much effect." 
 
Without removing the non purposeful barriers will we ever know? Why are we not informed ofthe final traffic flow plan? 
 
Get rid of the Planner!

Re: Tedeschi's et Town Planner

Discontinuing gas sales likely had a negative effect on the business at 7-11. I have a hard time believing the temporary barriers had much effect. And the franchise at that location (not the property) is for sale and listed on 7-11's website. Just in case any of you out there think you can do better.

Re: Tedeschi's et Town Planner

Why is Tedesci's closing? Who's set up the conditions for their failure? Why have they loss business?
 
The answer is the Town Planner! She  used  screwball reasoning for setting-up the use of Jersey Barriers, where none were required before.....ever! Her wacky rational was that she was running a test which would be concluded with a decision as to what would be the final determination as to improved traffic flow. People stopped trying to  negotiate the irrationally placed barriers.
 
However, just like the  long awaited Comprehensive Local Development Plan, she never concluded anything, except the fact is the dam barriers remain as a non-essential, non-functioning eyesore, with no logical reason for being! The insertion of Jersey Barriers killed  Tedechi's business. 
 
But wait a second, let's look at the results of her  actions, from the perspective of the various prospective developments being proposed for that area. Consider CVS and the much discussed use of eminent domain seizure of Duart's Parking  Lot, there is  a lot to consider. Maybe her actions were not so much wacky as purposeful.
 
She has worked hard on behalf of CVS, while working equally as hard to obstruct Tedeschi's. The net outcome of which produces the failure of an  on-going business and concomitantly produces and advantage to another.
 
She is an utter failure and has jeopardized the financial and legal standing of Provincetown.
 
Her relationship with developers and their lawyers need to be seen in the light of day as pure corruption warranting investigation by the state.
 
Panagore, she has to go! You  have the backing of the majority of the BOS and possess solid substantial reasons for terminating her position (eliminate the position). Get rid of her. Do yourself and the  town a good service!

Re: Tedeschi's

As I noted last week, Tedeschi's is closing its' doors and the staff are aware. September 15th is the date. Sale items are popping up throughout the store and are priced to sell quickly.  It's too bad one of the better convenient stores in town will no longer be available to those of us who live in the neighborhood.

Sometimes when I try to understand a person'a motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?

350 Bradford et Coastal Acres

To Clarify: all the individual developers involved with the lovely 350 Bradford/Michael shay and the Same...involved in coastal Acres

and it may not be an accident that they bought it from Jamie Veara's family--if not himself. The Lawyer behind so many town issues. all they want--the developers--yes, Bruce MacGregor and Paul DeRuyter and his son Ben ReRuyter--is to maximize their money and profits and tear it all down for what they can make. they have no heart. They have no love of this town. Use it and use it up.

Same people that gave you the disaster at 350 Bradford is now giving you Coast al Acres development. Oh, and look to the town Planner for all the help they need. she is in their pocket.

Panagore should tell him it's either his job or his affair.  Actually he should terminate him outright now for inappropriate activities and decision making.  Seems like it's the way to avoid a lawsuit.  As soon as you find out about it you took action to stop the harassment.  Let it go on and it's proof you allowed the sexual harassment to continue.

Provincetown Housing Authority

Has the Provincetown Housing Authority Board hired a new director?

I believe the other Hatch applied. So yeah sounds like a bribe also sounds like the opportunistic Provincetown way!

Serve on a board, get the director's job to push your own housing agenda! and get affordable housing to boot!

Re: BOS and Affordable Housing

Mary Jo Honey, are you just realizing that the BOS talk one game and do another? They don't care about us, or you.  You'd stop sounding silly if you realized they are inept and we need YOU on the BOS.  Please help us drain OUR swamp!  MARY JO FOR SELECTMEN!

350 Bradford

A little history on the developers of 350 Bradford and their lack of ethics: Back in 2015 when Wise and Macgregor were pushing their greed driven and ill conceived 40B project they requested a closed session meeting with the Provincetown Housing Authority Board. At that meeting Wise offered a piece of land behind Maushope in return for the Housing Authority to support the project at 350 Bradford.  The Board replied that they would love the donation but not if it meant having to support the developers project. As far as I have heard no donation was ever made.
Doesn't that sound like attempted bribery of a Town Board?!

350 Bradford

These developers need to be taught a lesson that they can't be saying one thing in their plans they show before building and then scramble for absurd loopholes when they get caught!  The intent of the bylaw is what counts! How could the contour of the land "before the hand of man" ever truly be determined?  Maybe something at 350 was different before 1920?!

Unethical Acts

You should not Be sleeping with your Underlings or anyone you Have Power over

If that fits David Gardner, then it does place us all in a potential lawsuit. this is because if you have power over someone--then they are not absolutely free to say no. Their job could depend on sleeping with the boss. This also applies to therapists, teachers. professors and all professionals.

Guess what? It also applies to the Town Planner. she also should not be sleeping with her underling. Neither should she have been sleeping with a selectman. and for the same reason. it is illegal and prohibited and brings the town into a full fledged law suit if the "sleepe" sues.

Willingness to have sex with someone who has power over you does not dismiss the law suit. Because the issue always remains: was the individual--student, psychiatric patient or town employee--really free to say no?

Re: BOS and Affordable Housing

Nice try MJA to mix issues. The tax exemption has NOTHING to do with affordable housing. It has everything to do with shifting the burden to those that are "wealthy" and allows the year round residents to pay less taxes. At ;east two of the selectmen have brains. Keep in mind, many of the part time residents aren't wealthy, having inherited the property from mom and dad and now rent the place out just to own it. Then there are the year round residents that are rich and don't need the exemption. Really fair there MJA.

Glad you're not still a selectman.

Re: BOS and Affordable Housing

"For some bewildering reason, the selectmen voted 2-2 NOT to increase the resident tax payer's exemption from 20% to 25%. I thought the idea was to find ways to make it more affordable for people to live in Provincetown year round. Here's hoping that it will re-appear on a future agenda so that Selectman Vendon, who was absent, will be able to break the tie and give resident tax payers a break.
Mary-Jo Avellar"


Mary-Jo,
It's an annual vote to set the tax rate.  They don't re-vote.  It comes up again next year.  If Vendon thought it was important she should have been there.

Town Planner a Plain and Simple Nut Job!

Wasn't writing the plan the main project she was hired to do over 4 years ago?

wasn't there a big conference with a ton of power points and subcommittees over a year ago? quite the build- up for nothing.

now she wants to be Henry David Thoreau, off in a little cabin, eating woodchuck, writing Provincetown's master plan.

The town will pay for years to come with this nut job at the helm.

Re: PBG

Thank you for finally acknowledging that the new ED of PBG 'pulled off Carnival". And that she brought in her own friends to do so. Perhaps that's because the previous volunteers were too attached to the former director and got word from him not to help out. And she pulled it off anyway.

The End of Foreign Student Workers?

The Trump Administration is considering the elimination of the J-1 Visa program, which is concerning many Cape Cod officials who said it would devastate the regions summer economy. According to Congressman Bill Keatings office, about 7,000 students come to the state for cultural and work exchange, with about 4,200 H-2B workers employed on the Cape and Islands during the summer season.
 
"There is simply no reason for the Trump Administration to do this. They are putting their own apparent xenophobia before the livelihoods of American citizens." -
