Our Goals

  • COW is a local, grassroots organization with a single purpose – to keep the Newburyport Redevelopment Authority from selling off parts of the city’s central waterfront property and/or from erecting buildings on the land.

  • COW wants to see the central waterfront area kept open, with free access to everyone, in perpetuity. 

 

Our Mission Statement

  • To assure the preservation of an open central waterfront, free from additional buildings and structures, on the shores of the Merrimack River in the City of Newburyport

  • To preserve public access to the open central waterfront, on the shores of the Merrimack River in the City of Newburyport

  • To maintain unobstructed views of the Merrimack River from Merrimac, Water and Green Streets
