The NPT summer 2021 newsletter is hot off the press
...and available in cool, easy-to-read PDF format HERE.

In this issue:

- Preservation advocacy update. With all the strategic continuations of cases before city boards, preservation advocacy requires commitment, tenacity, ... and maybe even longevity. The Fowle's window and facade issue is unresolved, and continued to October 12. The hearing on the massive shed dormer on the back of 2 Neptune Street, one of the city's few remaining 17th-century houses, is continued to September 28.

- NPT's Powder House Park & Learning Center. The Powder House was open for live in-person tours on July 31, the first Saturday of the city's Yankee Homecoming celebration. With hope for an eventual safe and healthy future, NPT aims for a full return to public programs when it is safe to do so.

- "If This House Could Talk" 2021. This NPT-sponsored do-it-yourself house history program was a hit again this year, with 90 locations across the city participating.

- Now is the time to question candidates about preservation policy. If firm-and-fair preservation policy is important to you, quiz the candidates for Newburyport's mayor and city council and find out where they stand.

- Irony Dept.: NPT's most far-reaching Facebook post. An article in NPT's spring 2021 newsletter was extracted for posting on our Facebook page --- and became the most-read posting in our Facebook history.
