North Andover residents are encouraged to join us for an engaging virtual session on the community and region’s current housing status. Learn about and discuss what work is underway to tackle housing challenges on the local level, as well as the tools and strategies that can be used to create additional housing opportunities in North Andover. This session is part of a series of engagement opportunities across the region to help inform local Housing Production Plan (HPP) updates and advance the conversation on housing in each community. Participants will be able to learn alongside residents of Amesbury, Andover, Groveland, Newburyport, and Salisbury, followed by community-specific discussions where your observations, ideas, and vision for the future of housing will be shared.
Please register for the session at event.mvpc.org/Housing1 or by scanning the flyer QR code. We look forward to your participation and the opportunity to learn from you!

The North Andover Board of Health wants to update the residents regarding the status of local mosquitoes and the actions being taken in town and in the region.
North Andover Board of Health has been performing weekly mosquito testing for West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) since April and have not had a positive mosquito pool yet this season.
Positive mosquito pools have recently been detected in neighboring communities. We have been in contact with Mosquito Control and have been informed our risk level has been increased to Moderate. We will continue to perform surveillance and urge all residents to read and follow these important safety tips:
Be aware of peak mosquito hours: The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes. Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that occur during the evening or early morning. If you are outdoors at any time and notice mosquitoes around you, take steps to avoid being bitten by moving indoors, covering up and/or wearing repellent.
Clothing can help reduce mosquito bites: Although it may be difficult to do when it’s hot, wearing long sleeves, long pants and socks while outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.
Apply insect repellent when you go outdoors. Use a repellent with DEET, permethrin, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30 percent or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age. Permethrin products are intended for use on items such as clothing, shoes, bed nets and camping gear and should not be applied directly to your skin.
Drain standing water: Many mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or getting rid of items that hold water. Check rain gutters and drains. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools and change water in birdbaths frequently.
Install or repair window and door screens: Some mosquitoes like to come indoors. Keep them outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors.
