FOLLOW UP from the I-93 City Council Meeting. PUBLIC HEARING on Nov 14th, 7-11pm (City Chambers)


Hello friends,

A huge THANK YOU to all those who attended the 10/11 City Council meeting on I-93 Expansion. Senator Becky Whitley and Executive Council member Cindy Warmington were in attendance as well. Here is the video from the City Council meeting and notable moments:

  • Minute 32:30 - Mayor Bouley announces a Public Hearing on I-93 Expansion at the next City Council meeting on November 14th 7-11pm

  • Minute 33:00 - DOT presents overview of I-93 Plans to City Council

  • Minute 1.16:02 - Councilor Brown asks about 39 acres of tree clearing, requests current traffic data, and conveys that many Concord residents are against highway expansion

  • Minute 1.20:00 - Councilor Kretovic expresses her concern that highway expansion will further divide the city and conveys the community’s feeling that Concord is worth getting off the highway for. She brings up the deck park and connectivity.

  • Minute 1.44:30 - Mayor discusses connection to the river, a deck park feasibility study, and asks DOT if they will work with the city (and the potential feasibility study firm) so that DOT’s project does NOT preclude a deck park or comparable improvement opportunity.

Please email your thoughts to City Council and JOIN US at the November 14th Public Hearing on I-93 expansion! Please RSVP here.


Gratefully,

The Concord Greenspace Coalition
