NRA project follows its mission statement

(Continued)

Shortly, private development will provide us with the long awaited and much needed hotel (although, sadly, not on the waterfront where it rightly belongs). With it will inevitably come a parking deck to make up for those relatively few parking spaces displaced by the NRA development, and perhaps, thereafter, eradicate this blotch on our waterfront altogether.

Finally, at long last, Newburyport has an NRA with the vision, authority and courage to complete the last remaining mandate of its mission statement by connecting the waterfront to the rest of our fabulous downtown and letting us all enjoy it, not only for ourselves but our children and their children in perpetuity.

Let’s not waste this golden opportunity. Continuing to do nothing is the worst and most unforgivable risk of all.
