Carriage Alliance receives funds for feasibility study

(Continued)

Mayor Thatcher Kezer said he was excited that the Alliance had been awarded the grant, especially after the positive vibes he got from Anita Walker, the Mass. Cultural Council’s executive director, when she visited Amesbury last fall and toured the building herself.

“It’s just another step forward for the whole effort, because the Lower Millyard is not just about what the city is doing, we’re a big player in that, but it’s about what the private sector and the nonprofit sector are doing,” Kezer said. “And this is a step forward for the nonprofit sector part of the Lower Millyard effort.”

Rep. Michael Costello, D-Newburyport, first notified Sherrill that the Alliance had been awarded the grant.

“The Carriage Museum will be an anchor destination in the Lower Millyard, and this planning grant will provide the blueprint to make it a success,” Costello said in a statement.
