Mansifled Patch is starting a new weekly column that will feature vacant properties in town and ask you the reader what you think should be down with them.
To start off, we have one of the most prominent vacant lots in the town, in between the fire station on 291 North Main St. and the Joseph Witt Salon on 313 North Main St.
The location could be ideal for either retail, housing or parking as it is in walking distance to the train and could provide the downtown area with more foot traffic. If it's a retail business building with apartments on upper floors, it would need more space for parking.
A parking lot for the MBTA station could conceivably increase foot traffic in the downtown for local businesses and help the area in that regard.
If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
