Let's call this a modern spin on community planning; a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.
We present a vacant space or property 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 many people to sleep. What would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
Take the building at 800 North Bedford Road in Bedford Hills. It once housed The Rugged Bear, a children's clothing store, and Kitch n' Kaffe, a shop dedicated to coffee and kitchens.
It now sits empty. We're hoping you'll weigh in on this vacant space, and share your thoughts for what sort of establishment would work best there. A community organization, or a nonprofit? Another set of retail shops? Some sort of professional office?
