Dutton St Do-Over

Idea:

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.

Benefit:

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.
