The NPT winter 2022 newsletter is hot off the press

... and available in cool, easy-to-read PDF format HERE.

In this issue:

- Deteriorating Fowle's sign has become a symbol ... But a symbol of what? City Planning Board to consider restaurateur's plans for windows and sign at public hearing February 16.

- NPT Annual Meeting scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m. Zoom in with fellow members and get the lowdown on NPT activities and accomplishments of 2021 ... and  the hopes and plans for 2022.

- Preservation advocacy notes: Tiny tidbits of tentative good news. Two long-continued proposals before the city's Zoning Board of Appeals that threatened the integrity of contributing structures within the city's National Register Historic District were withdrawn. The tentative victories were attributable in varying degree to neighborhood unity, impassioned public testimony, and supportive participation by NPT. 

- W. L. Garrison Lecture addressed the imperative of facing up to the legacy of white supremacy. Once again NPT was a proud sponsor of the William Lloyd Garrison Lecture, presented Dec. 10, 2021 at Old South Church. Edward Carson, Dean of Multicultural Education at The Governor's Academy in Newbury, Mass. delivered "The Gospel According to Garrison: Anti-Racism and the American Truth."

- Preservation Week 2022? It's a definite "maybe." The NPT board is considering a Preservation Week this year consisting of outdoor walking tours based on our deferred topic of Newburyport's 19th-century mill buildings.
