Leave it to the Daily News of Newburyport to wrongly attribute me:
Citing a preference for the strengthening of the city’s demolition delay ordinance and the inclusion of historic areas in a zoning overlay, Councilor Bob Cronin weighed in against the proposal, as did Ari Herzog, who claimed he still had many questions about the plan.
I never said I opposed the proposed Local Historic District. I said my feelings have not changed since the at-large councilor candidate debate last fall. I said at last week’s Planning and Development Committee meeting, as I said last fall, that I generally support the proposal but have questions.
I did not say I “claimed” to have questions.
For instance, I have yet to hear from the Planning Director and the Building Commissioner to ascertain how they feel, whether positively or negatively, about the proposed ordinance. Neither have aired their views thus far. They are the city’s policy officials for this ordinance; and I, for one, approved their reappointments. I want to know how they feel and why they feel however they do.
There are other questions and I will ask them when appropriate.
