you know, an effective intra-town bus could help reduce the need for parking. In the context of sustainability, it might make sense to have a goal of reducing the number of cars owned by residents. A good bus service would support a goal like that. It seems silly that our family car is the only practical choice I have for running errands to the town center that is 2.5 miles away.

A superb idea, Sanford. As a long term project, many changes in our transportation systems can be effectively implemented to reduce harmful emissions.

I agree with your assessment that small local retailers are at risk in the future. I personally hope retailers/ restaurants continue to be part of the mix in Concord - I support them with my shopping and dining. it'd be interesting to compare how other historic downtowns are evolving their space. I still love the look of Beacon Hill and I wonder if something more can be done to unify the look of concord center, regardless of what's being sold or offered in the various spaces.

Need to think about the future of retail in our two/three town centers. The retail environment no longer supports small local retailers very well and I am not sure it will in the future. A vibrant town center 20 years from now may look completely different, perhaps retail not as a hub, but with services and community gathering areas.

Some kind of shuttle all over Concord so people dont have to drive their car for a short trip or kids can have another option besides being driven.

Land uses that are compatible with environmental improvement such as composting or providing school bus parking closer to CCHS and thereby reducing diesel fuel use by simplifying / reducing total bus miles traveled as presented in 2016 during the discussion of Article 16 are compatible with the spirit of Thoreau's philosophy. Parking buses there under solar panels would be a good step toward meeting the goals of reducing CO2 emissions.
