Newburyport

Results in from May waterfront planning talks

A three-hour discussion regarding the future of Newburyport’s central waterfront, an issue that has been a hot-button topic for decades, resulted in several points of agreement, according to notes provided by the event’s facilitators, who led the talks. Participants said they wanted to see Market Landing Park expanded, with additional seating by the waterfront, and parking reduced. They also agreed that public access to the water should be protected and that a visitor center with more public restrooms is needed, though there was no consensus on where the facility should be located. The participants rejected the idea of selling the land to a private developer. The event, hosted by Mayor Donna Holaday, drew a standing-room-only crowd.
