6:30 to 8:30, City Hall Auditorium.
The Essex National Heritage Byway will be explained and input from the citizens and the city will be requested.
- It is all about promoting Newburyport.
- It is all about sending much needed infrastructure funding our way.
- It is all about enhancing and protecting High Street – Literally the entrance and exodus for the Byway.
We need the homes and streetscape protected through a local historic district.
We need the bike path along High Street restored and re-planned so it makes sense.
We need incentives for the property owners along this stretch.
We need signage so visitors will be directed toward our other ecological and historic assets in town.
We need brick sidewalks from Atkinson Park to the border with Newbury.
We need brick or painted as brick, crosswalks to stop High Street from continuing to be an Indy 500.
Above all else, we need the funds and the planning to make us the shining stretch along the route.
