While the winter can be cold, cleared bike paths are useable 95% of the year.

This is one of my top priorities for years

Bike/pedestrian crossing at route 2, so people can easily travel to both sides of town, especially school aged kids riding their bikes.

I disagree. Outdoor recreation is healthier.

The draft plan should include more planning to increase community gardens. Community gardening is a great recreation. Community gardens bring together all ages of our community. In addition Concord's gardens are organic, so they provide better habitat for endangered pollinators than farms which use pesticides and herbicides. Community gardening is becoming popular. In Conantum 10 years ago 10% of our households had a community garden plot. Over the past decade we've improved our gardens to exclude deer and (almost) rabbits and voles. Coincidently among new residents there's been a big increase in interest. So, this year 35% of our households have community garden plots. Envision Concord where 35% or more of our residents have the ability to raise organic vegetables, berries and fruits successfully either on their own land or on a community garden plot. We're doing it in Conantum and we could do it in Concord!

That public hearing is important, as is the event the next night April 26 on the Climate Solutions Series, 7:30 at Willard School. See the flyer here: http://files.constantcontact.com/c6979f58201/cf7581ca-fdff-4d4c-b39e-9e84efa8c42f.pdf
