The City of Newburyport has benefited greatly from having Nick Cracknell as Planning Director.
Many good projects have been completed that would not have been successful if he were not here. Long-range planning issues such as growth, waterfront development and open space have been addressed in a thoughtful, long-term direction.
Preservation of buildings, streetscapes and landscapes is the principle mission of the Newburyport Preservation Trust and we hope to be working with Nicholas Cracknell for a long time.
Mr. Cracknell is dedicated, enthusiastic and insightful in his job and uses the long-term welfare of the City as his goal.
We strongly support the retention of Nicholas Cracknell as Newburyport’s Planning Director and hope others will come forward to give support, and encourage the City to look at the larger picture.
