Council Resolution – Newport park at the Navy Hospital property Sept 28th

Great news! A new park!

Tomorrow (9/28), the Newport City Council will vote on a resolution by Councillors McLaughlin & Neville to create a new Newport park at the Navy Hospital property.

There are many reasons to be excited about this resolution. Not the least of which is that the Navy Hospital property is one of the few opportunities to connect the northern part of Newport to the waterfront. With the increased interest in development of the north end of Newport, it’s especially important to maintain publicly available open space. While this resolution is the first step, it’s an important one.

Please take a moment to contact the city council and thank them for supporting this important initiative. Click here for their contact information.

And, if you have time on Wednesday, we hope you join us at the City Council meeting to thank the councillors in person. The meeting begins at 6:30 at the City Council Chambers, Newport City Hall (43 Broadway).
