Is It Possible to Live in Chelmsford Without a Car?
The vehicular travel ban during the blizzard earlier this month got us thinking, and we were wondering about your take.
As we all remember, just a few short days ago, Governor Patrick declared all of the roads off-limits to all but a few vehicles due to the blizzard that dropped two feet of snow onto Chelmsford.
Still, Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford remained open and people were still walking and snoeshoeing their way down and that got us to thinking: is it possible to live in Chelmsford without a car?
After all, this town existed before the invention of cars and people still were able to get around.
Would that be feasible with today's lifestyle?
Would the town's land use planning practices have to change if suddenly all the cars disappeared off the roads like they did for a few hours during the blizzard?
Would you even still want to live here?
Would gyms go out of business due to all the extra exercise people would probably get from walking more?
Would there be some other form of transporation that would take the place of cars?
We want your take! Tell us in the comments.
