I'd love to be able to easily get from the Rail Trail to the Market Basket, or to other destinations down Valley St, on my bike. Having to go North to Granite St or South to Queen City Ave seems like a great idea stopped short. Get cyclists from across the river straight onto Elm (or at least across the train tracks), and it would be perfect.

Although a lower income area, I feel this is not a reason for the neighborhood to be neglected. The roads in this area are crumbling, the parking for the bike oath has been commandeered for construction staging area, and the sidewalks are over in with trash and weeds. A better maintained neighborhood would make the neighborhood feel safer and look nicer to visitors to our city. Low income or not.

This area of the city has a lot of lower rent housing. I would hate to see these people displaced.

There's a real need for a connection between S Commercial St and Elm St, for all modes of transportation.

Love this idea, especially for architecture to mimic the brick facades and clocktowers of the mills.

Start building houses and shops in traditionalist architecture styles (Neo-Classical, Baroque, Tudor, Georgian etc. Virtually every city in the world builds modernist architecture, and I believe the first step to make the TOD plan successful is to make the architecture beautiful, ornate, and traditional. Let's make Manchester NH look architecturally unique from any other city in the United States. Why do you think tourism is booming in Europe? It's because they've preserved centuries old traditionalist architecture that gives each city a unique architectural identity. It is the same reason they don't allow modernist architecture or skyscrapers to be built in their cities. It is a common misconception that traditional architecture is more expensive than modernist ones, this is completely untrue. Steel, glass, and concrete costs more than wood, bricks, stucco, plaster, and stones.
