Can't We do anything right?
Harbor Hill is a disaster and so is the Community Center "deal."
Harbor Hill is for Erik Yingling, Gloria McPherson-she needs a place poor child!--well they may only need one place like before--oh,
except for an added town employee--she can rent for the summer--and also for David Panagore. Ocean views and we are funding
the deal. Anyone who voted and advocated for Harbor hill should not be allowed to rent there. It is a conflict of interest.
8:57 pm edt
This Harbor Hill thing already reeks to high heaven. Are they just figuring out that there isn't
going to be enough demand? Everyone was telling them.
There's a shortfall in funding of $150,000/ year but
they are going to let people who are making $50-100K pocket money from summer rentals? Instead of giving it back to
taxpayers? And you know Rafael (cash business) Richter and his cousin, each of which just inherited a ton of money,
are going to be first in line for apartments.
Summer renters? Ha. If I were renting a unit I'd advertise
in Boston for a house share in Provincetown for the summer. Nothing in the rules preventing it. I may get my entire
annual rent paid.
Taxpayers are chumps.
So Many Cry Babies in This Town
8:55 pm edt
Grow up people. If someone has a different opinion or wants to argue their point accept their differences.
For a town that preaches tolerance and acceptance I do not see that much of it. BTW, former BOS members that posted political
views all the time on fb in the past really need to grow a pair.

If megan kelly can't make it at NBC we should send them Panagore. Bloviator with no clue how to
8:52 pm edt
I can't believe the Tourism Director is still here. Talk about not doing your job!
Donegan Speaking Alt Fact
8:49 pm edt
Right before our very eyes the Year Round Rental Housing Trust is becoming WORKFORCE HOUSING.
Anderson bemoaned the need for WH and stated that HH will help fill the need for workforce housing.
According to the BOS/TM: Panagore gave Hatch the Community Center because we needed a media center, not workforce housing.>
But, if that were not bad enough, Tom Donegan and the BOS will allow the 26 renters at Harbor Hill to take in summer
roommates and keep all the money from them while the taxpayer subsidizes their living space. Because that's the Provincetown
He said: "Taking in summer roommates has been a long practiced tradition to make housing affordable
to year round residents.
The idea of having a summer worker live with residents (not subetting) was widely discussed
in the public hearings and was included in the Town Meeting presentation. During those meetings, the concept of summer roommates
was very well received by residents and businesses owners alike."
He has ZERO PROOF that it was MENTIONED
at Town Meeting. IT WAS NOT. DONEGAN IS A LIAR!
As for "well received" a show
of hands, who thinks we should pay to subsidize housing so people can make money on the side?
hand. Mr. Anderson
You may recall, the BOS gave him 78 additional seats for his restaurant. But
that Mr. Anderson is so generous he will be fostering a roommate matching service for his employees Of course
they will get priority in the eligibility process, but that's the Panagore way. Rules are for the little people.
Self serving. Hatch got the Community Center. Yingling picking out his Harbor Hill unit. Anderson
filling the beds with Canadian summer workers. And Anthony. would it kill you to say something? Anything?
If you didn't move your arm during the meeting, I'd have thought you were sleeping.
There is so
much corruption in our BOS. Drain our swamp.

"It is disgusting and threatening abutters reveals how they
play and the dirty games they are involved in."
But isnt it exactly the above what the abutters
did to the 350 Bradford Streets developers??? To threaten with pursuing legal action, etc?
Guess not only
the abutters can play this game, huh?
Lack of Affordable Housing
8:44 pm edt
The angry Lesbian who wrote about the lack of affordable housing is correct! Straight & elderly
are in the same boat! mercenaries here are gouging rents that are obscene! Some are charging nearly $4,000 mo. for 1
person & are not allowed to share expenses with anyone else to further burden the water/elec. costs in old places without
any amenities! There should be a ceiling on Winter or Year Round! Owners get top dollar in season & want the same amt.for
Winter rental also saying they can get it by placing their property with "Home Away" & other Agencies that rent
to wealthy for Holidays! Further displacing residents from More affordable Winter rentals! Something must be done! Some places
have Ceiling Rentl Boards!
8:42 pm edt
Anderson is making it workforce housing because his employees need housing. It was supposed
to be for year rounders. Cheryl said 6 weeks away isnt enough. They need to sublet and make money while
the Town pays the bills.
Another bait and switch Panagore style.
What the .........?
8:40 pm edt
Just watched the joint meeting with the BOS/FINCOM/and the Trust.
OMG> Anderson has written
the trust rules for his employees. "workforce housing" won't count in your income. You pay less, make
more, and the TOWN picks up the tab. Am I missing something?
8:39 pm edt
And the final Harbor Hill post: With 15 two-bedroom apartments, the trustees are encouraging roommates.
Anderson said that some of the employees at his restaurant, Canteen, are willing to share space.
will incentivize roommates by prioritizing applications with households of two or more, Anderson said."
So, the guy that owns the restaurant that the BOS just gave 78 seats to, now has his hand in the housing cookie jar.
I will work the system so my employees get priority. Will he be assigning them roommates and collecting a finder's fee
How thoughtful of him. He should get some money from the Town just for being.
8:37 pm edt
We are frustrated that the process has taken this long, but the process is the process, Mooney said,
adding that the Housing Trust has spent about $140,000 on legal fees from its $1.5 million budget. We have no choice but to
let it play out. We remain optimistic that the timeshare will be dissolved soon.
We are not happy with the legal
fees, but its not that bad, Anderson agreed, adding that he hopes the town will close on the deal sometime between January
140K to the lawyers...."not that bad"
8:35 pm edt
One of the rules they are so proud of: "Another incentive for renters with an empty bedroom
will be to rent a room to a summer worker for up to 120 days income that would not be counted in calculating their rent."
SO, The taxpayers will be subsidizing rents while the same person can offset their subsidized rent by getting a summer
INSANITY! AT THE TAXPAYERS EXPENSE!
8:17 pm edt
Don't know if it's true, but no one in their right mind would let a town employee date a subordinate
with a sexual harassment lawsuit a real possibility. Get real: This is Provincetown. if it is true it will be over- looked
and then covered up.
8:16 pm edt
The Town didn't vote to give away the Community Center Building for 99 years!! The Board of Selectmen
over stepped their authority and failed to act in the best interest of the Town! So why isn't this preposterous "give
away" of the Community Center negated and the contract denied and deleted? No one answers this question ! Why not? The
Town wants the building back!
VSB Meeting on "You Belong Here" Campaign
8:14 pm edt
There is a public meeting for public discussion on Monday October 16 2017 at 3 p.m. to discuss the Branding
that had been proposed. I have heard from many who hate the campaign and dislike the "You Belong Here" slogan.
many show up to speak to this issue. with so many upset, it is time to speak publicly to this marketing campaign. Please
try to be there. the public comments come at the beginning. You can arrive, speak and leave. It's more like voting!!

350 Bradford Never Needed Zoning???
11:18 pm edt
Planning was the only board to review the designs and the elevations--if there were accurate elevations. Why was
Zoning silent? why didn't Zoning oversee and rule, as a regulatory board, on 350 Bradford? There was a change of use and there
were seven massively built structures where before there was only one? And who determined that this does not need Zoning?
Strange, isn't it, that in the appeal, 350--and Bruce McCabe and Chris Wise-- went before Zoning to be granted an
appeal--an appeal thankfully denied.
but shouldn't 350 Bradford and all the owners of this corporation have appeared
before Zoning last year to have their plans reviewed and approved?
And this corporation threatened neighbors and
abutters by stating that they would build gable roofs--instead of flat roofs--and even increase the height even more--if any
of them went against their appeal. They should be in court for this. It is disgusting and threatening abutters reveals how
they play and the dirty games they are involved in.
11:16 pm edt
I missed the memo that says the housing crisis ended.
Birds of a Feather
11:14 pm edt
Panagore is as much a lawyer as Gloria is a Planner. IN NAME ONLY
350 is a Disaster and a Corrupt Design
7:16 pm edt
Paul Deruyter and Chris Wise know what they are doing. It is disgusting and they should be ashamed. But gaining
profits over anything seems to cast a stone over their soul--if they really have one.
And add Gloria McPherson
to the corrupt union in her role to do only one significant thing: help developers. she is not a Town Planner but a town Developer
Agent--only that motivates her.
And how much money is being passed around town hall?
Only the most
