Visions For Vacancies: What Business Should Go Here?

Today's commercial vacancy is in the State Line Plaza.

Every other week, we present a new vacant building 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. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

Today we are featuring an end unit in the State Lina Plaza at 136 Elm Street. Many years ago, prior to construction of the adjacent Home Depot, the original plaza contained a Bonanza Steakhouse in this space.

About this column: In highlighting vacant buildings in Enfield, 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? Tell us in the comments below, or e-mail tim.jensen@patch.com.

How about bringing back Red Lobster? Not sure why it was taken out of town. Seemed to be busy everytime I drove by it. If not them, how about a Popey's?
