A Review of Short-Term Rental Regulations and Implications for Provincetown
Report by Economic and Public Policy Research
The study examines current practices nationwide around short-term rental regulation and identifies what lessons these regulations may offer to Provincetown, especially regarding increasing the availability and attainability of year-round housing.
As a seasonal tourist destination, Provincetown experiences three distinct and mutually exclusive demands on its housing stock:
1. Year-round residences
2. Vacation homes
3. Summer workforce housing
The findings of the study were presented to the Provincetown Select Board and Town Manager on September 25, 2023. Presentation slides are found here.
