… and Marlboro’s downtowns.
Flowers, flags, adorable small businesses, smooth street, crisply painted yellow crosswalks, cones in the crosswalks reminding drivers to SLOW DOWN (pedestrian-embracing), flower beds everywhere, public art, SUPER CLEAN (no dumped garbage!) … steal these ideas, Worcester Downtown boosters! Make our Main Street sparkle!
P.S. Years ago I worked in Marlboro part-time – and drove through Hudson often. Kinda dumpy. These burgs have really come along way, blossomed with biz. However, I’ve got to say: Marlboro looks over-developed. Too many chain everything! I miss all the open green space there … It’s like Marlboro planners are developer-whores: They say YES to every Applebees, Walgreens, tire joint and strip mall! Way too much!
