Thank you for your comment. The Committee has already received valuable input from a number of conservation and environmental interest, such as the Natural Resource Commission, the Concord Sustainable Energy Committee, ConcordCAN, Agricultural Committee, and OARS for the Assabet, Sudbury & Concord Rivers. We hope other conservation and environmental interests come to the next Special Conservation Coffee on November 7th at 7:30am at 141 Keyes Road to talk about the update to the Comprehensive Plan and discuss "What do they see are the pressing issues for the Town?" and " Where do they think there are or will be tensions that the community will need to discuss and find ways to balance?"

Thank you for the comment - we're compiling a list of places people are noting for crosswalks, sidewalks, and trail connections.

To expand your excellent point about mutually beneficial opportunities, I will say that I tend to think about these "tensions" as competing priorities that actually have more alignment that we might think... if we can plan outside the silos. That is the whole purpose of this comprehensive long range planning process - to look across needs and disciplines to come to efficient and mutually beneficial outcomes. It is amazing what can happen when many people collaborate! Can't wait to see this in action at our 10/21 public meeting and to hear opinions at our open house tables in West Concord Village and Concord Center the day before on 10/20.

Thanks for the idea about crossing Rte. 2. This also came up at the May 31st planning event.

Yes! The designated emergency shelter for the community is the Harvey Wheeler Community Center.

It really wasn't too difficult to see the benefits of becoming a member. However, there is a cost associated with being a member, so it took a while to incorporate that cost into the appropriate department budget. Please feel free to email the Town Planner Elizabeth Hughes if you have further questions.
