The last time the city did a large paving project on Elm, it did little more than resurface. Project cost was under 2 million. Concord did a DT rebuild at upwards of 10 million, Nashua around 8 million.

Perhaps a lack of grant $? Hoping we can develop a vision and secure funding for the next downtown project rebuild/resurface, before it takes place.

This area will need day and night “welcoming” transportation options (such as the pedl cab that currently exists) in order to grow the “gas light” district.
In a mill building in this area, is a top of the line recording studio attracting national musical acts, why couldn’t the gaslight district be our artists/live music village? The city can’t control landlords, but it would be great if it could find ways to transport people to this area, light the area, keep it safe, improve aesthetics, and seek grant $ to focus funds on one specific area, w a specific goal.

A friend mentioned that there's no good way for residents in the neighbors after Hayward St to get to South Elm. There are no connections (or through streets) from Willow St. to Elm and the intersection of Willow/Queen City/S. Willow is not pedestrian-friendly. Although outside the potentially outside the scope of this project, would love to see consideration on better ways to connect to south end neighborhoods so we can take advantage.

I really like the scale and feel of this area that has been designated as the gaslight district. I would like to see it preserved and maybe enhance the historic character of the district. Maybe uncovering the cobblestones under the street.

YES, completely agree. When they painted the bike lanes, while there is plenty of room still, they made the driving lanes more confusing, specifically in front of Market Basket, where a lane turns into a left-turn only lane very abruptly and without a sign. It leads to last-minute lane switching which is unsafe for drivers and bicyclists.

The bike lanes here are a little confusing, especially with the multiple traffic veering on an otherwise straight road. It'd be great to either protect these lanes, or figure a way to better ensure drivers are correctly shifting to their designated driving lanes instead of into the bike lane
