South End deserves better than it gets


This is not the same South End that allowed a playground to be taken away from our children in order to erect the sewage treatment plant. There is recurring mention of turning the Brown School property into low-income housing, which would negatively impact the already overcrowded and overburdened South End. Why would anyone think it a good idea to add to the overcrowding? Moreover, where is the input from those who will be most directly affected by such a revision to the Brown School? I can’t help but wonder if better planning and foresight might have turned the Brown School into a Senior Center rather than spending new dollars on a new structure — dollars that could have well gone to our lagging school curricula.

As a city, Newburyport is a gem. It has become what it is because, as a people, we have heart, warmth, respect, caring and concern for one another. We would welcome the same from City Hall.
