I think Dorrie is on target here. When small, relatively affordable houses are replaced by huge, expensive ones, we are making Concord a less desirable and affordable place to live. This is a destructive trend that should not be allowed to continue if we mean what we say when we talk about meeting human needs in a fair and equitable way. A sustainable town is one that adequately houses old and young, rich and poor.

Please devise a management plan for open spaces that includes rangers who patrol our conservation land and educate people about the importance of respecting wildlife and the land itself. The program at White Pond was very successful and needs to be continued especially with the bike trail construction. Since Concord is a tourist town and thousands of people visit our conservation land, the town must have a plan in place to ensure the preservation and protection of these lands. I am also in favor of dog walking restrictions so that dogs do not run freely through the woods disturbing wildlife and other visitors. Many conservation areas in other towns already have stricter regulations than we do. The dog owners have been vocal but please remember there are also many of us who are in favor of reasonable limits. A dog park also seems like a logical solution.

Please consider converting the White Pond Reservation land to conservation land. This proposal has been suggested for decades by several open space committees. Converting this land would mean it is protected by conservation guidelines. White Pond Woods is an important part of the natural spaces needed by wildlife who depend on them for their habitat. Over the years, the development of the southern part of Concord ( the pig farm now Caterina Heights, Captain Miles Lane, Stone Root Lane neighborhood, etc.) has encroached on the available space for wildlife.

Excellent suggestion! Concord does have a Tree Preservation Sub Committee that sponsored our Tree preservation bylaw, passed at last year’s town meeting. The by-law is a start and can / should be expanded.

Many folks are not aware that trees are connected to our water cycles, can protect against drought, and keep our land hydrated and aquifers full. We need to connect the dots by forming a climate resilience committee or task force to review and make recommendations on best land and water management practices (including trees and other vegetation, creation of healthy soil that can provide quick water infiltration, protecting water supplies, etc).
