An Excellent Idea from the Mayor

Mayor Holaday is a firm supporter of the expansion of the local historic district ordinance.      Given that and the ‘fearful’ state of some homeowners, the Mayor’s suggestion is a fantastic one.

Bring in members of local historic district commissions from across Massachusetts into a panel discussion.       Then they can explain what they have seen first hand living under the LHD ordinance.

AND THE AUDIENCE CAN PEPPER THEM WITH QUESTIONS AND THEIR CONCERNS.

It apparently is not enough that we have had a local historic district here for four years that has ironed out the kinks in an ordinance that uniquely would apply to Newburyport.

These ‘fearful’ need to have their hands held by those who have and are continuing through the experience of being LHD’d.
