Vacancies: North Brewster Road Space

Put aside all the regulations, restrictions and rules—we're asking you what type of establishment would make the most sense here.

Let's call this a modern spin on community planning; a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.

We present a vacant space or property 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 most people to sleep. What would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

Our inaugural installment of this column received a couple of great suggestions, as did our subsequent posts—especially the one about Sciortino's.

Now, we're hoping you'll weigh in on a building that recently housed Brewster USA Karate MMA. The business opened in March.

So, Brewster and Southeast folks, what do you think should become of the space?

Please leave your answer in the comments section below. Thanks for participating!

About this column: In highlighting vacant buildings in Brewster and Southeast, we aim to help residents take a proactive role in planning and building their community. We'll run this column every other Friday and, when appropriate, take your feedback to public officials and property owners, to inform their decisions about future uses. Know of a vacant building we should highlight? Email Ashley.Tarr@patch.com.

Age old question - A simple rule on new square footage being permitted can only happen when existing space is at the proper occupancy level, with any developer wanting to build new must subsidize pre-existing to encourage it's occupancy. ----- But who among us would want more government involvement on private property owners rights?
