Sign the Petition to create the Newburyport Local Historic District

A petition directed toward the City Council and the Mayor and all political entities that the City needs to protect its historic assets by establishing a 'local' historic district over the entire National Register Newburyport Historic District.

 

 

“…the strangest problem is how many old-house owners have been persuaded to throw away all their fine old windows and replace them with plastic counterparts that will last only 5 to 20 years. A well-built old window can be maintained and repaired to last for centuries and can also be upgraded to meet current energy-saving goals with simple, low-cost treatments like exterior storms, interior air panels, or even ordinary roller shades.”

Historic continuity with the past is not a duty.   It is only a necessity.

 “When I meet homeowners who are committed to maintaining the historic details of their homes during renovations I am always appreciative; in fact I consider these homeowners stewards of the rich history of Newburyport.”

-Greg Greene, Greene Construction, May 20, 2013, Newburyport.com

 

“I think anyone who came in today to develop land, like the waterfront, would want to adhere to those requirements,” Sullivan said. “People come to Newburyport to be attracted by the historicity of the community... we want to continue that.”
