Just in case you were wondering when the Champions of Historic Preservation banner will be presented to the City Council – that time will be just before the Local Historic District Study Committee presents their finished product.
So there is plenty of time – we have presently 400 plus names and growing.
In an aside comment – if you live in one of the twelve non-historic district neighborhoods; it would make a great impact if you would post a Yes LHD sign. All these areas depend on a preserved and vibrant historic Newburyport to keep their property values high. Putting up a sign indicates you understand that process and will go a long way toward assisting the entire City to realize how vital preservation is to our economic health. It also is good if these signs go up in Wards 1, 4, 5 and 6.
The LHD is designed to benefit ALL of Newburyport.
