I believe the town of Concord should take into account the value that our local retailer provide. The retailers are the Backbone of this town. Without them Concord would be a ghost town. They add so much to this wonderful town. The retailers have been having a great deal of difficulty in the past 3 or 4 years with major shops closings. So far the town government has not consulted the retailers themselves as to what they can to do help them stay in business. I would like to see the town take an active interest in our small independent business to see what they can do to help. We are all connected to each other. When the town, the merchants and the property owners join together and help one another then and only then will we become a strong business community once more, like it was 10 years ago, if you remember back that far? Cheer: Bill Montague a 41 year Concord Retailer.

Small one family homes. On a heated slab foundation, with a deep two car garage for storage, right off the kitchen, to make it easy to shop and bring your groceries in. Then the kitchen would be large family room with dinning table in the same room Perhaps with a fireplace for warmth and comfort. One bathroom. Perhaps 3 bedrooms. One can be used as an office if you like. Newley weds would be able to afford it. It could easily support 2 children. When we get older we could move into such a nice comfortable small home, with neighbors like us. No steps to fall on hence no basement. The fireplace needs a cold air inlet as the smoke filled air goes up the chimney it needs outside air to enter. The clean out door in the bottom of the fire place to have cold air come in. The hearth needs to be at least 12 -16" high so the clean out ceramic liner for the clean out can be accessed from he outside. You could have an ash pit or ash barrel for the ashes. You will find the fire place in winter to be just "The most tolerable third party ", Henry David Thoreau. Concord is the Farmland of the Soul, plant yourself hear, then watch yourself grown, like Emerson and Thoreau. Bill Montague

More affordable smaller houses so newly weds and retired folks can live here in Concord.

Please consider converting the White Pond Reservation land to conservation land. This proposal has been suggested for decades by several open space committees. Converting this land would mean it is protected by conservation guidelines. White Pond Woods is an important part of the natural spaces needed by wildlife who depend on them for their habitat. Over the years, the development of the southern part of Concord ( the pig farm now Caterina Heights, Captain Miles Lane, Stone Root Lane neighborhood, etc.) has encroached on the available space for wildlife.

Please devise a management plan for open spaces that includes rangers who patrol our conservation land and educate people about the importance of respecting wildlife and the land itself. The program at White Pond was very successful and needs to be continued especially with the bike trail construction. Since Concord is a tourist town and thousands of people visit our conservation land, the town must have a plan in place to ensure the preservation and protection of these lands. I am also in favor of dog walking restrictions so that dogs do not run freely through the woods disturbing wildlife and other visitors. Many conservation areas in other towns already have stricter regulations than we do. The dog owners have been vocal but please remember there are also many of us who are in favor of reasonable limits. A dog park also seems like a logical solution.
