Construct a weekend curb extension at the corner of Dutton and Market streets in front of the old Merrimack Rug/new Flower Mill. Allow on-street parking from the Club Diner to the curb extension and from Haffner’s to the corner of Dutton and Broadway Street.
This will slow down the speeds of cars and shorten the distance for pedestrians when crossing Dutton Street, making it more safe. Allowing on-street parking will be a boon for those businesses on Dutton St. Businesses on both sides of Dutton St will see that "bridging" the neighborhood is mutually beneficial. More on-street parking will be good for attracting development to the Smith Baker Center. If Dutton St businesses do well commercial tax revenue goes up for the city.
