When consultant keeps saying "change is going to happen whether we want it or not" or something to that effect, one wonders: Is anyone claiming otherwise? (Doubtful.) The question that then comes to mind is: Is consultant trying to pre-advocate for certain preferences, specifically: not just for conceivably appropriate development, but also for pre-arranged , pre-determined reduction policies in conservation measures, to smooth the road for any not-necessary development. Not dissimilar to some of the policies of the current national administration. Ideas perhaps especially based on closed door meetings with for-profit interests and with town management personnel some of whom have expressed resistance (per draft report) to natural preservation initiatives. This "baking- in implementation" approach raises concerns, especially when meetings with developers have taken place behind closed doors, and also since consultant has resisted similar meetings with conservation groups. Whatever improved transparency the CLRPC decides to provide from now on will not change this initial rigging of the field. Yes, change will of course happen, as transformation, as evolution. The way to go about is to tackle needs one by one, not to write off or reduce natural preservation measures from the start. In addition, we do not know what exactly might change in two or three years - demographically, ecologically, politically. So it is dangerous to establish pre-set policies. We can only identify immediate needs and future potential needs.

I think that Concord needs to view sustainability not just as having more solar panels and heat pumps but as a critical facet of almost everything we decide as a town. What we do about managing public water and waterways, supporting local and organic agriculture, introducing carbon sequestration practices into out use and care of land, what kind of housing we have. Just about anything we plan as a town either adds a lot of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere or does not. Our actions remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere or do not. Proper use of sustainability principles means that every decision is analyzed to pinpoint as closely as possible how it impacts climate change, which is our most critical threat as a community and a planet.

HI Michelle, This is Laws Brook Road, intersecting with Bayberry and Sorrel Road on one side and Hill and High Street and Hillside Ave on the other.

Which road are you talking about?

Lots of speed limit offenders on this stretch of road. Post more "Ped Xing" signs, especially for children getting on and off school busses
