Thursday, February 15th at 6pm
City Wide Community Center Auditorium (14 Canterbury Rd)
3) Looking @ Loudon Road: Community Listening Session - Wed, Feb 21st, 6:30-8pm (RSVP here!)
Please join us on February 21st, 6:30-8pm at the City Wide Community Center (14 Canterbury Rd.) to share your thoughts, concerns and ideas on safety, livability, and economic development along the Loudon Road corridor. We will be joined by several City Councilors. All are welcome! Please RSVP here.
The present moment marks a critical juncture for Loudon Road. The impending Steeplegate Mall redevelopment, Kiwanis/Riverfront Improvement Project, the urgent demand for housing, the proposed ConcordNEXT zoning, the I-93 Deck Park improvement initiative, the increased need for parks, and the increasing loss of Concord's urban tree canopy all make it an opportune time to envision and invest in the Heights. This includes highlighting the rich history of the area and what makes it special and beloved by its residents.
The urgency for addressing safety on Loudon Road is also evident—two crash-related fatalities in the last 6 months and 1,507 crashes since 2014. Twenty-seven of these crashes involved pedestrians or cyclists underscoring the immediate need to address transportation safety on this vital corridor.
