So it is logical for me to believe we will reap quality of life rewards while at the same time increase our tax base with the completion of the Lower Millyard renovation, including Heritage Park.

My firm belief is if we are to bring tax relief to individual homeowners, we need to increase our tax base. The Lower Millyard renovation is a huge step in that direction. As we wisely invest in our future we again send the message to current and future community members that Amesbury is a great place to live, work and do business.
