Seashore Residency The Provincetown Community Compact is accepting applications for Dune Shack residencies for the 2011 season. No room service, just peace and quiet and your creative thoughts as the tides come in and out. The Dune Shacks are located within the Cape Cod National Seashore and protected by the Peaked Hill Bars National Register district. At the same time, they remain fixed indelibly in the consciousness of the local community. Balancing these dual interests, The Compact’s programs support and enhance federal public access and interpretive goals while strengthening the community bonds of people and place.
