Meeting tonight to determine the fate of the Newport Barracks!

Tonight if you are able please attend the meeting of the Newport Town Council, if you cannot please urge anyone who can to attend. The meeting will take place at 6pm at the Newport Town Hall. If you cannot attend, you can always call the Newport Town Hall and ask to speak with the mayor or manager to express your concerns over the threat of development to the site at 252-223-4749.

If unchecked development is to take place, we will lose this site forever. Please do what you can to help, every bit helps!
