Overview

History & Mission

This is the official web page of the summer residents who are property owners and taxpayers but not voters in the town of Chatham, Massachusetts. Chatham has a long history with summer residents, who in large numbers become permanent, voting members of the community. For over seventy years summer residents have held an annual summer meeting to discuss matters of mutual concern and have their questions answered by town officers. In 1996, the town established the Non-Voting Taxpayers Advisory Committee (NVTAC), since renamed the Summer Residents Advisory Committee (SRAC), whose members, appointed to three-year terms, work to:

  • Give summer residents a voice
  • Give the Select Board the benefit of information and views
  • Give fresh outlooks to the town
  • Take a position and make a case for or against town matters
