Visions for Vacancies: Filling a Main Street Opening

There is a storefront for sale, right along Main Street near the intersection with Farmington Avenue. How would you fill it?

The opportunities are endless and with the right grant, there is opportunity for growth as well. So how would you fill this Main Street business?

Let's call this a modern spin on community planning - Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.

Each week we'll present a new vacant building and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts people most to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

The retail space could make for a nice store, lying near a barber shop already in existence and next door to realtor. But it's not about what we think - and that's why we are asking you.

How would you propose to fill this Main Street property? What is the town lacking that this space could help fill? Share your thoughts below on this week's Visions for Vacancies property.
