Photo by Stewart Lytle NEWBURYPORT -- Gene and Donna Greco 40 years ago drove north on Rte. 1 to check out a restaurant that was for sale on Water Street. Then a bartender, Gene and Donna, who was a waitress in the same Cambridge restaurant, were looking to open their own restaurant. Never having been to Newburyport before, the trip took so long that he thought, “I was in Canada,” he joked The Grecos were not impressed with the state of the restaurant they came to look at. Called Rick’s Starboard Galley, “Everything was broken. It was in bad shape,” he recalled last week. Nor did they think much of Newburyport. “It wasn’t much. There were a bunch of drunks lying around,” he said. What impressed him was the location of the restaurant, a few hundred feet with a great view of the Merrimack River. “The water sold me,” he said.

T h e neighbors were not happy, and 623 Wethersfi eld Street many of them showed up to overflow crowds at two hearings last week to voice their objections and concerns. Both the conservation commission and the planning board met to discuss the proposed solar farm. “It’s very disheartening,” said Tammy Graves, who lives across the street from Bonni Berkowitz at 623 Wethersfield, who wants to turn part of her 93 acres adjacent to her house into an income-producing solar farm. The property is owned by the Maven Revocable Trust. The Rowley Planning Board sided with the neighbors and sent Rowley Solar Co. back The Town to the drawing board to design a footprint for the Comm panels that would be less intrusive on neighbors like Greg Kassiotis and Sera Bajor, whose properties would be virtually surrounded by the panels. “What we are asking for is a little respect for us and our property,” Graves said. Holaday told the Grecos, “You have been so important to the community for so All over the country, solar farms are popping up on under-utilized land to produce long.” income by selling the generated electricity to utilities.
