NRA plan offers larger park, more tax money

(Continued)

For over 30 years, Newburyport has missed out on the opportunity to have both a larger waterfront park and an aesthetically pleasing development of the NRA property. It has also missed out on 30 years of property tax revenue that could have been used employ more teachers, fix sidewalks and beautify the city. I encourage anyone who would like to see something better than the status quo on the dirt lots join others in supporting the NRA’s plans. Otherwise, resign yourself to another 30 years of stagnation on the waterfront lots. What a shame that would be for all of us and anyone who visits our community.
