Although I now live in Hadley, I still identify with Northampton, have many friends here including business owners, and visit downtown often. I am elderly yet still enjoy a safe vibrant walkable downtown designed for the future as well as the present.

I'm signing because we senior citizens need to listen and support the younger generation. Their insight, thoughtful research, and passion must be respected and supported. Their suggestions WHEN IMPLEMENTED will be of great benefit to all, senior citizens included...and our grandchildren.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I want the downtown to be more inviting, green and user-friendly for businesses and pedestrians. I am also really concerned about the landlords who are keeping storefronts vacant, eroding the vibrancy of our beloved downtown. Please pay attention to this important petition.

Northampton has always distinguished itself by taking innovative steps towards addressing community needs. The pressures of climate change present just such an opportunity. Let Northampton be bold and make the choice to grow into the future we envision. Tree cover to shade pedestrians, bike lanes to foster non-carbon-producing transportation, opportunities for businesses and the community to come together to share sidewalk space. this kind of planning is exciting. Make the visionary and exciting choice, Northampton!

I'm in favor of this plan. I would like to see a more forward thinking design for the future of downtown Northampton - like other cities where I have visited. Less for cars and more for people, greener, less road and more pedestrian and with adequate parking, snow removal done differently than presently. Let's not jump on a plan but continue dialog.
