After the NRA article, I couldn’t figure out what was the reasoning behind the madness. Sure, the ‘building’ advocates were ecstatic and the usual open waterfront supporters were wringing their hands – all this was expected.
But there had to be an elaborate reason for letting the newest member of the NRA to make a fool of himself.
Then I saw the parking meeting on Thursday and the puzzle pieces started coming together.
To prevent such lunacy of more buildings and to pay for the park and to stop the horror show of a giant Newburyport Government Landlord; they need the paid parking.
What better way to smooth the way and to silence the opponents than by presenting this design spectacle.
But will it work?
