I think the Broadband infrastructure managed by Concord Light should be leveraged for community wifi/connectivity and a captive portal for both residents and visitors. As residents we could leverage a Concord social platform to be better informed and connected with regard the community, activities and events. For tourists, we can leverage the platform to gather information on our visitors an provides a "whats on in Concord" service and direct potential customers to local business and attractions.

Please post the initial two drafts prepared by CLRPC co-chairs, sent to the consultant around February 19, and later shortly after Feb 24-25, so that the public (and CLRPC itself) knows what the committee's own contribution was to the final draft plan - as distinct from revisions by consultant (and also additions by planning division.) These two drafts were prepared by the co-chairs on behalf of the committee and should be publicly posted documents.

Hi Tanya,

As a Realtor and someone who lives in a transitional neighborhood, I can tell you that the developers were the highest offers on the Capes in my neighborhood. Now, the Capes have become a high demand commodity. People want the Capes for downsizing and for starters, for which they are paying more than the developers at this point. One thing to keep in mind, the developers are not the bad guys. They pay what the seller wants and for them to make money, they have to build a home that will give them a return on their investment...as, in any business.

India-I live in a 60+ year old drafty home that has blown in insulation and the fuel comsumption is more than the 4,000 sf newly-built home behind me. Not all homes were insulated and retrofitted.

Here's a thought: you are selling your home...it is 60 years old and in a nice neighborhood, close to town. You get multiple offers...what do you do? Chose the highest and best offer or pick one that you think may not knock it down? Most people will chose the highest offer. Whether it is a developer or a young family, your nice little home no longer meets the building code of today...it is a fuel sucking monster, with little insulation. New builds and renovations are well-insulated, utilizing less fuel and meeting building codes. Something to ponder...

Lee, no need for the tone! Also, for your information, this is not regarding just the privately owned property. It includes much of the Town of Concord property. As far as Thoreau is concerned, he must not be the man I thought he was if he did not like dogs.
