On behalf of the residents and the Newport City Council, I welcome you to the City of Newport, Vermont, a great place to live, work and enjoy the many recreational activities we have to offer.
Our wonderful city has so much to offer its residents, businesses and visitors. While Newport is well known for our beautiful international Lake Memphremagog and surrounding mountains, we are also proud of our community and its positive energy, filled with citizens who care about our future.
We are a progressive city with great business opportunities, schools, local hospital and great city services. Newport is leading the state in providing businesses opportunities from our Form Base Zoning to tax stabilization. If you are looking to relocate your business or start a business, we are here to help.
If you are looking for recreational activities, you are in the right place. Our wonderful parks and recreational facilities provide a great quality of life not only for our residents but also for the many visitors. From relaxing at Gardner Park or Prouty Beach to boating and kayaking on Lake Memphremagog, or if you like hunting and fishing, we have so much to offer. If you like skiing, Jay Peak Ski area to our west offers some of the best skiing in the east and if you want to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets, the Northern Star Cruise Boat will take you on an evening cruise.
I also encourage you to learn about the many community groups or the various Newport City Renaissance committees. We are always looking for people to help guide Newport into the future. Please make sure to visit all the sections of our city website.
Again, thank you for visiting our wonderful community and we look forward to your visit or relocation.
Paul L. Monette, Mayor
City of Newport
