Clearing up myths about NRA

(Continued)

I have been listening and talking to people for ten years now about completion of our central waterfront. The “concept plan” adopted by the NRA has widespread support in the community. “The plan” represents a vast improvement over the status quo and provides a wonderful link between our beautiful downtown and waterfront. I look forward to using this “concept plan”, along with the advice from our panel of experts, to guide us in the creation of a thorough and thoughtful “request for proposal”, that can be marketed to the top developers in the country.

“The mission of the Newburyport Redevelopment Authority is to revitalize blighted or deteriorated areas of the city by attracting the private investment needed to achieve a balanced mix of housing, business, and public/open space in a manner that provides socio-economic benefits to the city by providing jobs for the unemployed, and adding tax revenue to an overburdened community.”
