Carriage Alliance to shed light on Lower Millyard plans

(Continued)

Dan Healey, who owns the Carriage Mills office complex on Water Street, has said he will build a 30,000-square-foot expansion to his property if the project is approved, and other property owners in the area have indicated they would be able to substantially improve their buildings.

Future portions of the project include a realigned Water Street, an expanded Water Street parking deck and a fully refurbished Carriage Museum building, which would become home to the Chamber of Commerce offices, the Carriage Museum, a new visitors center and new artist space.

The Carriage Alliance, which is a joint venture between the chamber and the Amesbury Carriage Museum, has been an ardent supporter of the project and has actively worked to spread the word about its details.

Last month, the alliance produced an informational video about the project narrated by School Committee member Peter Hoyt, and the Chamber of Commerce posted a page on its website dedicated to the project.
