What Would You Put Here?

This former Dunkin Donuts store, empty and surrounded by a fence, is blocking the view of the 19th Century First Unitarian Universalist Church. What would you put here instead?

The old Dunkin Donuts is gone, but its empty shell remains, surrounded by a chain link fence. Many people think it's an eyesore, and it blocks the view of the beautiful

At the Milford Selectmen's meeting, one of the selectmen suggested the Board of Library Trustees acquire the lot and turn it into more parking, for the library.

What do you think? What should go there?

Why don't we just change the name of the Patch to "The Illegal Immigrants News"? Or better yet, when someone types in the phrase "Illegal Immigrant" the Patch put in a filter that changes the phrase "Illegal Immigrant" to "My the weather is beautiful!"

Hey... Just as McDonalds isn't based in Ireland, Taco Bell is American founded, owned and deeply loved. Respect the chalupa and it will respect you.

The Milford Daily news reported that the owner or the property already has signed lease with a tenant. http://www.milforddailynews.com/news/x1052258886/Milford-Library-plan-calls-for-more-parking

I think the Taco Bell idea is perfect. With all of the hype when Chipotle replaced the one in Franklin, I expected this incredible Mexican food place with fresh ingredients that would leave me craving more. Instead I got a Mexican place with four choices, no chalupas, and a line winding out of the door for a nine dollar burrito. Granted, Taco Bell isn't the HEALTHIEST of Mexican fast food places, but right now, it's the best we've got on the East coast. And to the man who said to make it a Starbucks, please count the number of coffee places in this town. Why in the WORLD would you want to pay 10 bucks for a coffee that sounds nice because it's in Italian?

I originally heard the Franklin Taco Bell was going to just move further down Rt 140 towards Bob's Store. If anyone sees it opening there, let me know.
