Anything would be more attractive. Perhaps a mixed use with retail on the first floor. But it would be nice to move forward. Just having it closed with fences and signs indefinitely shouldn't be an option.

The property at Washington and Swanton needs to be redeveloped in an attractive way so that it enhances one of Winchester's most important streets.

I want to create a trail network like in Lexington . Lexington has an ACROSS LEXINGTON Trail network using both trails and neighborhoods .....it is quite an effective system and they have 20-30 miles of trails and walking routes (designatted in town with trail maps and kiosks) it would be great if we could establish one ourselves and connect with Lexington's network

Ridge street from St. E's to V-O is a very dangerous area for pedestrians. Cars travel at high speeds and the current sidewalks are narrow with little to no curb. Given that we have a church, a public playing field, the farm and a school all along this route, we need better sidewalks, lower speed limit and additional crosswalks.

Jeff, smart lights/technology sounds like a great idea. Just did a quick Google search and saw Quincy was looking to install last year after the technology company, Surtrac, "was created by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. The team behind it says studies showed the system reduced traffic on some main roads in Pittsburgh by 25 percent. " A 25% reduction is certainly better than the 0% we are now seeing. Technology and a creative solution like this is needed for pedestrian safety and to protect our neighborhoods.

A vibrant, thriving, town center with great access to transportation, retail, food, and housing. It will draw in new residents and shoppers, and make it possible for seniors to stay in town after they have become empty nesters. If we don't try to envision it -- it won't happen. It all hinges on managing traffic, creating parking, and increasing pedestrian safety. I also agree with Heather that Lynch and Muraco (both of which have been outdated and in poor repair since I moved here 25 years ago) are a priority for Town spending.
