Massachusetts will soon be adopting new building efficiency requirements as well as requiring all new cars to be electric within about a decade. This redevelopment should go further than just meet the current efficiency standards. Well within the lifetime of this redevelopment, all new buildings will be carbon neutral. Recent studies by the Massachusetts DOER have shown that there is relatively little or no upfront additional cost to make buildings carbon neutral, and a carbon neutral building will cost much less to operate. I hope that you will consider the longer term advantages of making the buildings carbon neutral by exceeding the current building code efficiency standards and by installing solar panels on the building roofs. Additionally, the infrastructure for electric car charging stations should also be put into the initial construction as this will be required in the future.

What about an art Co-op. There are lots of very skilled potters and painters and jewel makers in this area. A co-op that would sell local art and wares would get me to visit. Any thought on art studios? Using local artists for decor?

If heating and cooling were ecologically inspired! Use geothermal and solar panels for electricity, do not use chemicals in greenways, plant clusters of native trees to attract birds. Please plant native trees! There are lots of funds available for those who plant natives.

What is your plan for provision of electricity for the people who will live there and the shops? Please consider solar and geothermal. The Merrimack Valley has had enough natural gas disaster!!

Public art. There are many artists in the MV and I'd love to see some public art on display. Adding to that, a spot for community based rotating mini-exhibitions.
