Concord Center, seems to be losing its vitality as shops close.

A significant way to address this is to make the center itself an experience. Walking, lingering, having commodious places to sit, to eat, to talk. Imagine places where our restaurants could have tables outside. Our stores could have displays where folks could take their time.

Consider widening the sidewalks on the Milldam and Walden street by getting rid of street parking. With signage, direct cars to our parking lots (and negotiate more spaces from private sources) to offset the loss of on-street parking.

The current traffic lanes would remain.

Yes an important challenge for developers it to build small affordable state of the art houses. On a slab, two car garage right off the kitchen for grocery unloading etc. Basements with steps are far too dangerous and unnecessary

In the case that the middle schools are rebuilt at Sanborn, the Peabody site could be repurposed into a co-housing development. Affordable community housing with shared spaces would be attractive to young families, close to both Willard and CMS. For a nearby example, look at NewView housing in Acton, a really nice living situation.

And park the buses under solar panels to keep them out of the weather and over the course of a year generate the power they'll use. And don't park them here, but park them under solar panels at the schools. It's a good way to educate our children about conservation and reduce our bus transport operating costs at the same time.

I think that parking "solution " isn't good at all. I never had a problem parking in the center and talking to others from Lexington, they always mentioned how easy parking is in Concord.
