How are we doing in our “City by the Sea?” What has been accomplished over the past months? As a function of the city’s Strategic Plan, what are the successes? Where did the city fall short? What can the residents and taxpayers look forward to? Any warning signals to look for?

Alliance For A Livable Newport hosted a “State Of The City’ forum on Tuesday, February 27th at Claiborne Pell Elementary School to get the perspectives of Newport’s elected officials and of the City Manager about the issues they have been addressing over the past year and expect to be facing in the current year, and to challenge them with your questions* about the future of Newport.

Panelists included Mayor Harry Winthrop, City Council Vice-Chair Lynn Ceglie, and City Manager Joe Nicholson.
