Public Restroom Signs and Access Restored

Sep 10, 2010

Ever have to go to the bathroom and can’t find a public restroom? recently ran a story about how the Provincetown Art Association and Museum tried to discourage use of their public restrooms by removing town signage. Public works employees have restored the restroom signs.

After a summer resident was denied bathroom access, a complaint letter was sent to the town. The Water and Sewer board warned the museum that they were violating their sewer permit and to fix the problems.

Other Provincetown public restrooms are in town owned buildings. The museum’s executive director Chris McCarthy complained that a non-profit organization shouldn’t be included in the town’s public restroom system without funding assistance. He estimated that 8,000 people in the summer season came to the museum only to use the restrooms, costing $1,100 annually for maintenance and supplies.

If you need a public bathroom anywhere, check out the Charmin sponsored website Should organizations like museums be mandated to provide public restroom access? Do you think the restroom signs should have been restored?

    I hate shopping and not finding ONE bathroom available. I guess the thought of the city providing a facility, toilet paper, running water, and hand towels, is cheaper than cleaning pee off the cement. I didn’t know there was a site that we could suggest public restrooms in areas. Thanks!

    [..]He estimated that 8,000 people in the summer season came to the museum only to use the restrooms[..] – the rest 92,000 people from every 100,000 have already gone to McDonald’s for this purpose ;DD

    And you don’t hear McDonald’s complaining!

    I had to do a double take of that picture. I thought it was a real woman laying on the grass for a second. Great post and nice photography. Definitely an attention getter.

    I’ve come across businesses where “restrooms are for customers only”. I think museums should do the same.

    I can’t stand how public restrooms are becoming a thing of the past. My bank doesn’t even provide a restroom for customer use? Pretty annoying!

    Insightful post. We certainly can appreciate readily accessible, clean restrooms!

    Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go. Is it really that big of a deal for public buildings to offer restroom service?

    Oh, this is good news to me. I always wonder where we can find public bathrooms when we are out and about.
