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.
In an occasional column, we'll present a new vacant space 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.
We launch this occasional feature by focusing on the now vacant space at 313A on Millburn Avenue?
The space is an 1100-square-foot store front in a great location on the corner of Lackawanna Place. It used to be a shoe store, Foot Solutions Inc but moved to West Orange.
So with tons of shopping, restaurants and other eclectic shops in downtown Millburn, now it's up to you to suggest what business should move in. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
