Common Space letter

Common Space Use POLICY

April 8, 2009

The Provincetown Housing Authority has found it necessary to address the use of the common TV room, the common kitchen and the Maushope Tenant Association office.

The common TV room and kitchen is available for ALL tenants to use on a daily basis. The common TV room and kitchen has also been available for tenants to use for private functions. The use of the common TV room and kitchen for tenant’s private use has been approved by the Maushope Tenant Association and the Provincetown Housing Authority Administration.

A second issue is the use of the Maushope Tenant Association Office. The Maushope Tenant Association office is not available for private function use by tenants

The Executive Director has received numerous verbal complaints regarding tenants not being able to use the common TV room and kitchen due to being unaware of a private function as well as tenants using the Tenant Association Office.

The Officers of the Maushope Tenant Association and the Executive Director have agreed on a system that we hope will address the issue of private use of the common TV room. Tenants who wish to use the common TV room for private use will place the time and date on the calendar that has been hung in the Maushope Tenant Association office above the office light switch. Tenants are to schedule private functions at least 72 hours in advance of the function.  

The Maushope Tenant Association and the Executive Director are hopeful that scheduling functions on the calendar will protect the right of Maushope tenants to use the common TV room on a daily basis as well as continue to allow the room to be used for private use.
