Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A Waterfront West Overlay District (WWOD) was established in 2005 due to the unique land use, historic, cultural and architectural resources of the properties located along the central waterfront of the City of Newburyport, to encourage implementation of the recommendations contained in the 2003 Waterfront Strategic Plan. Following the January 28, 2019 Report submitted to the City Council by its Ad Hoc Committee on Waterfront West, a proposed amendment to the WWOD was sponsored by Councilor Connell.

A joint public hearing on the proposed amendment was opened on 9/19/19 and continued to 9/26/19 and 10/10/19 to obtain public input on the proposal. The Planning Board closed the public hearing on 10/10/19 where they voted to recommend that the Council reject the proposed ordinance .
