I've heard people talking a little here and there about Manchester, but I'm not all that familiar with it. It sounds as though Manchester is experiencing a recent boom. Is this the case? If so, why?

It was a ghost town.

This is great for Manchester. Hopefully this boom lasts.

I agree. For ever there have been talks about bringing the commuter rail up to Manch Vegas(or Manch Angeles) but nothing has happened yet except for some proposals. But they are getting ready to start a huge I-93 widening project and they may bring the commuter rail up though the middle of the expressway.

But even in 1995, Manchester's population was growing, though maybe not in leaps and bounds. I know when I visited there in 1999, only the area closest to the millyards were hopping. I'm happy to hear about all the changes that have taken place since then and I hope to take a trip up to Manchester soon so I can see it for myself.

Commuter rail will defintely benefit Manchester by making easier for people to either commute from there or use it to take a visit. I'm not sure if Manchester is ready for full-blown electric light rail yet (maybe diesel light rail service), but I'd like to see a historical trolley line, like the one in Lowell, running along Elm or Granite Sts.

I seriously hope NHDOT will leave in provisions for commuter rail service along 93 when they widen it. NHDOT needs to take a more pro-active stance toward rail transportation. Gas doesn't cost $1 per gallon anymore and it never will again.

I don't think they should build the Northwest Business Park (even though it's not scheduled to be completed till 2018). It's too suburban. They should be building more office space downtown and be encouraging businesses to locate to downtown instead of some sprawling cookie-cutter office park off the Everett Turnpike. Put the money that is budgeted for this project into a downtown high-rise office tower or something like it.

Good luck on that, I don't think Murray (DOT Commissioner) has put too much support behind those proposals. Until this past may, I worked for NHDOT, though not on these larger projects (they get shipped out to consultants due to staffing levels). But I think status quo is weighing a little too heavily on these people. Not to mention Murray will "yes" you to death just to keep you happy. It was sickening when Benson was governor.

Fortunately Benson is gone. Maybe John Lynch will get things right.

You can say that again. I switched registration to Republican (from "no affiliation") just so I could write in Dick Green for the primary.

I actually got to meet Gov. Lynch on my last day working for (and living in) the state. Seems like a good guy, and infinitely more genuine and personable than that scumbag Benson. Really small guy too, you can't usually pick that up in photos.
