I was reading the paper this morn and found an article about what homebuyers are looking for in a suburban experience - it might align with what some of us existing homeowners are looking for too. This focuses on the Chicago area & is authored by the real estate industry but I think it's an interesting perspective. It points out that our non-chain retail and dining is important to attracting new homebuyers into our community. http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/brand-connect/nar/millennials-go-surban/

Our town centers in Concord and West Concord are treasures, but our local retailers are under tremendous pressure. We can try to shop local, but the impact of big box retail, internet shopping, and high local lease rates are closing our shops. For the first time in my 25 years here, we have boarded up shops in Concord. We may need higher density housing and workspaces around our town centers to keep them vibrant, and we may need some rules that encourage landowners to find mixed use tenants faster.

I agree with your assessment that small local retailers are at risk in the future. I personally hope retailers/ restaurants continue to be part of the mix in Concord - I support them with my shopping and dining. it'd be interesting to compare how other historic downtowns are evolving their space. I still love the look of Beacon Hill and I wonder if something more can be done to unify the look of concord center, regardless of what's being sold or offered in the various spaces.

Look at creative ways to reuse the remediated landfill at CCHS for recreation. A variety of potential uses have been suggested already. Let's study the options and be in a position to move forward when the remediation is complete.

Some kind of shuttle all over Concord so people dont have to drive their car for a short trip or kids can have another option besides being driven.
