Testing Concord's Walkability

Dan Burden audits the walkability of a Concord neighborhood, and offers a vision for a more livable city.

"...[A]t the invitation of Concord 2020, Burden walked the streets surrounding the intersection of South, Clinton and Broadway at McKee Square. He showed residents and city officials how shorter crosswalks and smaller lanes could make a community friendlier to pedestrians, more attractive to live in and quicker for cars to travel through... Burden's vision is radical. Eventually, the low buildings that now dominate the square could be replaced by higher ones with retail stores and banks on the first floor, offices on the second and apartments above the businesses."
