What Would You Like To See Here?

The Old Septembers

, Richard Camerlin had his proposal to build a bar described as “” at 372 Boston Post Road approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission, and all of Waterford began to wait.

And wait. And wait.

And it never happened. In November,

To date, no work has been done on the property. The question is, what would you like to see at 372 Boston Post Road? It is zoned for a bar/nightclub, would you want a bar or a nightclub? If so which type? Or would you prefer something else, like a restaurant?

Let us know. Perhaps Avery Lane LLC is listening (Patch tried to track down who owns Avery Lane LLC, but to no avail). What would you like to see at 372 Boston Post Road?

Considering we live right down the street...I agree, a Whole Foods would be nicer than a bar! I LOVE Stew Leonards!!! What a great idea! An awesome, fun place to shop and prices are unbelievable!! Plus they are rated the top ten places to work and treat their employees like family!! Employees move up the chain quickly, it would create so many jobs in the area. Someone contact Stew :)

My business is right next door and I would rather see a strip club (which is what it looks like) than a faceless chain store or restaurant. How about a flea market and antique shop?

I don't understand the attraction to the chains, if you want family dining try THE SHACK, good food great service. Whole Foods,Trader Joe's?? try Fiddleheads in New London...There is no shortage of box stores and fast food in Waterford.

I like the idea of a local foods restaurant, locally grown, produced etc. but without the attitude and sky high prices. In conjunction with that, I could see a nice little farmers market in the lot on the weekend in the summer.

There have been a lot of great ideas for this spot. I for one would like a whole foods or trader Joes. However, I have been told by some that Trader Joes and Whole Foods have looked into coming to the local area but will not because of the socioeconomic status at this time. So I would hope a local business person would open a country general store that can sell the same kinds of items as the big chains do.
