Could you put the parking lot under ground? It would free up more green space and there would be less lighting and noise pollution. Less plowing in the winter!!

From a heritage standpoint, I would love to see a store steep itself in selling textiles...from yards of fabric to stands of yarn. North Andover was known for its textile mills, yet we have to go clear into Salem NH to acquire fabric.

I believe local businesses should be there: small shops, coffee shop with outdoor seating. Local will inspire real community development which will inspire "ownership" by the people who live there.

Places to inspire, like library, meeting places. Health food (Whole Foods, etc).

After reading other comments, I see that this question inspires other questions. My initial response isn't well thought out.
There are grocery stores and retail areas all along Rte. 114. Can the area sustain another grocery store?
It would be good to share information about the projected impact on the small retail area in the center of North Andover and the new retail areas further northwest on Rte. 114.
The concept drawing seems to show cars driving through the area. I think a better plan is to have the area be closer to pedestrian only, like the Church Street area in Burlington, VT.
Current residents also need information about the multifamily residential plans. The buildings look like they will be multistory. Will there be elevators, or will the buildings be walk-ups? What is the square footage of an apartment? How does it compare to the current apartments?
Some of the responses to comments refer to a master plan. Is this a North Andover town document? How do we get access to it?
I see from many comments that the community, along with me, needs more concrete information.
