The following is the message they hope to place on the ballot:

“Upon the sale, lease or removal from service as a public school of any portion of the buildings and grounds of the G. W. Brown Early Elementary School, the City of Newburyport shall dedicate and hold permanently for public park and playground uses under the meaning of Chapter 45 of the Massachusetts General Laws an area of such site that is at least equal in size to the school yard currently located on the southeasterly portion of the site, including the mulched area for play equipment, the basketball court, and the so-called amphitheater.”
