Mark Hanson - the "landfill area" could easily be sculpted to support both dryland training and snow covered "sprint" style cross country skiing which is an olympic sport and more easily maintained with snow making equipment. This would extend the cross country running course and perhaps even youth mountain biking.

Cross Country skiers get in shape using roller skis. We need a paved track on the CCHS property for them to practice. This would be much safer than having them practice on the hilly roads in Conantum and other areas in Concord. Neighboring towns would likely contribute as the track could be used by skiers around the area. Possibly we could get the track 'for free' by just providing the land for it. The good thing is that hills is what the skiers want and the hilly area of the CCHS property might work.

In addition to CCHS, lots of other schools use the track at Emerson for practice or meets (Middlesex, Fenn, middle schools, etc.). Having a track at the school will alleviate that pressure.

Currently throwing events are held at the school, and running events at Emerson, making it hard for students and spectators to participate in both.

More than 10% of the student body participates in xc and track and field, making it one of the most popular activities in the school.

As a no-cut sport, with low expenses, and minimal equipment requirements, it make for a great introduction to a lifetime of health and fitness.

Prudently broaden and diversify the non-residential property tax base to lessen the burden on existing and future homeowners, senior citizens, and others on fixed incomes. This will help to make housing more affordable and will help older residents remain in their homes.

More focus on our schools as shaping our students well being. Safer biking and walking.
