POUA Names Harbor Place Boardwalk After Chairman Brian Dempsey

On Friday December 16th we gathered to celebrate Harbor Place in Haverhill, and Chairman Brian Dempsey’s key role in making the project a reality. Brian Dempsey helped secure $36 million in state funding for the project, which includes 80 units of housing and a 5-story commercial building which will contain a UMass Lowell satellite campus, HC Media and headquarters for Pentucket Bank, as well as office space to be leased. The event celebrated Dempsey’s contributions to the project, which will honor him with the naming of the boardwalk after him. The event included speeches by Mayor James Fiorentini, UMass President Marty Meehan, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo.
