ZBA and Woodman 40B Project

I got a chance to talk briefly with Ed Ramdsell the chair of the Newburyport Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) about the 40B Project on Low Street on the Woodman Property.

What Mr. Ramdsell told me was that the 40B project would be on the ZBA agenda often, but that did not mean that anything significant would happen at any particular meeting.

Mr. Ramdsell also told me that because the 40B Low Street project is so complicated that whole ZBA meetings would be devoted to that project only.

Since this is such an important issue for so many people in Newburyport, Massachusetts, Ed Ramdsell said that the ZBA would make sure to let media outlets know when something of significance was going to happen.

One of the things I learned early on as an activist is that people get “meeting fatigue,” so it’s really important to know which meetings are significant. And I really appreciate that Mr. Ramdsell will let the community know which meetings are important to go to.
