What Should Go Here?
A new Patch column solicits reader ideas for filling vacant lots.
It's no secret that downtown Springfield has more than its share of empty storefronts. Patch wants to know what you think is the best way to fill them.
We're starting with a Morris Ave. storefront whose former tenants didn't move far. 246 Morris Ave. was the home to Chinese food restaurant the Tomato Garden until the owners moved the shop across the road to 239 Morris Ave. The person answering the phone at the current Tomato Garden couldn't say when the restaurant moved but the storefront has been vacant since for at least two years.
What do you think should go in now? Let us know in the comments. When we get enough answers, we'll put it to a vote in a poll.
