We won't stop people from commuting through Concord but we can slow them down so they pay attention and are more aware of the crosswalks.

Fully support 25 mph throughout Concord. Our community should be for families as opposed to those who drive through it on their commute.

Concord needs to make safe walking + biking a priority; this means more sidewalks + bike lanes + lower speed limits throughout town (25 mph max). (Lexington, Arlington, Cambridge have already done this.) It shouldn't be so scary going from one side of town to the other on foot or bike! Concord needs to make sure its planning is around people and public physical + social health - not around cars (the driving concern in the 20th century) (Ask, what would Thoreau do?!) It needs to look what other communities have done to make their planning less car-centric (like Copenhagen!) Concord also need to do more 'evidence-based' design, copying prototypes that worked well in other communities both here and abroad, and importing them. It also needs to engage in post-occupancy evaluation of completed plans + developments; assessing how well a new project turned out so the town can learn from its best practices + avoid mistakes. This doesn't seem to happen much now and it shows; the quality of most recent new commercial and public buildings in town is lower than in the past. The future of design and planning will be data-driven with key metrics gleaned from measuring the positive or negative human experience of place; we need to get ready for that now!

We need a sidewalk all the way down Cambridge Turnpike. We need crosswalks for them to use. There are children that live here and would like to walk to their friends' houses.
