Must stop practice of approving special permits which allow teardowns & building beyond new footage bylaws. People who need larger homes must do what we used to do, sell the smaller house and buy up!

Repeating what I said before - Debra’s is for a specialty market, limited and very expensive, and the 7/11 (How many years ago did the White Hen close?) only sells garbage - and very little of that. The West Concord supermarket closed for many reasons, but there is most definitely a market for a new, competitive grocery for the “common person”.

Yes!! In West Concord there is no longer a grocery store within walking distance of the Center. As Mayor Menino noted, 'Every center needs a grocery store." There are a growing number of older residents of Concord Greene and especially in the winter this need is really significant. The West Concord Shopping Plaza seems a logical place, but the current leases, except for the 7/11 prohibit the sale of grocery items. I think that the Town could work to bring this about--again, perhaps with "incentivizing." This is a top priority for me.

But Debra’s is too expensive and limited for the average shopper and the 7/11 (the White Hen closed several years ago), only sells garbage at a ridiculous cost.

There is a real need for a small, affordable grocery store (perhaps even selling local farm produce) in West Concord. Especially for those of us who are unable to drive.

The libraries! They are beautiful, peaceful, warm in winter and cool in summer, and full of interesting reading and listening material and programs.
