Letter: Main Street under glass

Why not put a super-dome over Main Street in Concord? Then it could be a paradise when the weather’s foul. When it’s a nice day, just open the dome. No, I’m not serious, but it’s not much crazier than the plans being put forth now.

The entire Main Street proposal is nothing more than a giant money pit. Using public funds in a recession to make something pretty and sooth egos of those who see themselves as visionaries is not necessary. The net gain or ROI will do nothing to improve traffic for the businesses in downtown Concord. They can't compete with stores and businesses able to purchase goods at a lower cost. This is more about public servants justifying their existence and spending money than about the good it will do for Concord or the businesses.
