You've lived in Macomb Township for five, 10, maybe 25 years, but have you ever had a say in community planning?
Despite its name, community planning is not a community-wide effort. We're going to change that–even if it's just in theory–here on Patch.
Taking a 21st-century spin on community planning, Patch is putting everything on the digital drawingboard and asking residents to share their visions for vacant properties in town.
Periodically, we'll 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?
Two weeks ago, we asked about the former Rite Aid at Hayes and 21 Mile Road. Dozens of readers made suggestions and Trader Joe's won by a landslide.
This week, we feature the now vacant Saab of Lakeside dealership at 19077 Hall Road.
Saab moved out earlier this month. What would you like to see in its place?
