I am writing to explain my thoughts on redesign of Main Street. Our world is in environmental crisis and we have to decrease our carbon emissions. To save our planet, society must change the way we live. We must become more ambulatory and less reliant on our intense use of cars and trucks.

We must design our towns such that we can promote walking and bicycling. I support removing parking on Main Street to promote a non-automobile-centric district. Just outside of town we will need more parking options such as large parking lots. For instance, perhaps the Round House parking lot could be changed to a multilevel parking garage. Of course accommodations should be made for disabled folks so they can access downtown parking.

This is a design change we need everywhere. Some towns and cities will lead and be models so that other municipalities can follow. It would be great if Northampton was one of those cities.
