Representation of Provincetown Commons, Inc., in connection with corporate formation, governance, obtaining tax exempt status, lease/contract review and negotiation, and obtaining local permits and approvals.
Provincetown Commons is renovating, adapting and programming a nearly century-old community center located in the heart of Provincetown, MA, for use by the local community. The revitalized community center will provide year-round working space and professional support to area artists, other members of the local creative economy, and start-up businesses, and will serve as a gathering space for educational and community initiatives, as well as for the Outer Cape Cod community at large. Aiming to contribute to strengthening Provincetown’s year-round economy, the Provincetown Commons will serve as a nexus for creativity, collaboration, and new economic opportunity.
As general counsel to Provincetown Commons, Goulston & Storrs attorneys created formation documents, registered the corporation with the Secretary of the Commonwealth and Massachusetts Attorney General, and obtained 501(c)(3) tax exempt status from the IRS. We worked closely with Provincetown Commons on all aspects of the re-development process, including negotiation of the lease and related documents with the Town of Provincetown, obtaining local permits and approvals and negotiating the construction contract with the contractor. Provincetown Commons had its grand opening in late 2018, and we continue to provide legal support and counsel to the transformative community center.
