VISION FOR VACANCIES: The former Connecticut Car Care

Located on Whitney Avenue between Glenwood Drive-In and the Hamden Post Office, the now empty lot is awaiting its next use -- what should that be?

A For Sale sign sits in front of the property at 2520 Whitney Ave -- prime commercial property situated between the popular and the

The land is now cleared, but before the heavy machinery arrived there was on the spot , which offered repair and maintence services as well as a car wash.

Though not a terribly large piece of property, it's an idea location for a business, located on one of the busiest roads in town and close to both the Route 40 connector and Route 15.

A small well kept office building housing medical businesses would not be an eyesore and would bring in revenue.

I would love to see a Barnes and Noble or an LL Bean, something different that we don't have here already. But not much chance of B&N since they're going downhill. Or a Vera Bradley store -- I'll bet that would do well. A smaller, upscale store, and NOT A NAIL SALON, BANK OR PHARMACY!!!! I'd love a movie theater but I'm sure it's too small.

Another idea - how about a small group of condos, restricted to people over 55 so there won't be more burden on the schools? Older people would enjoy being able to walk to the businesses in the area.

Assuming the lot's not polluted and not too small the over 55 condos works for me.

"Maybe QU or the Town can build something there and thereby remove it from the tax rolls." Sarcasm.
