Vacancies: Revisiting Clock Tower Frame Shop

Put aside all the rules and regulations—we're asking you what type of establishment would make the most sense in that spot?

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. This week we're revisiting a property featured on the site in March: the space that once housed Clock Tower Frame Shop.

When Patch asked the first time around, one reader suggested a Starbucks. If you agree, or disagree, with that suggestion, tell us in the comments. And don't forget to mention what you'd like to see move into the space.

About this column: In highlighting vacant buildings in Southeast and Brewster, we aim to help residents take a proactive role in planning and building their community. We'll 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.
