Amesbury

State gives boost to Lower Millyard plan

Continue reading below

The city’s plan to revitalize the Lower Millyard has gained momentum thanks to the support of Governor Deval Patrick’s office, which helped Amesbury gain designation as a Brownfield Support Team community. The designation makes the city eligible for support in cleaning up environmental issues required for the revitalization plan to move forward. This is in addition to a $400,000 grant from the state’s Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities Program that has been earmarked for construction of the Lower Millyard Heritage Park. The plan also includes construction of a canoe and kayak launch, connecting the park to the Costello Transportation Center, which will make it accessible to the Senior Community Center, and building outdoor recreation space for public use.
