Visions for Vacancies: What Should Have a Ticket to a Bolton Road Building?

Give Patch your vision for the old TicketNetwork facility.

Vernon Patch loves your input. So, in a column called Visions for Vacancies, we present a vacant building - in the case of this week one near the highway - and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use for it.

Yes, we have zoning regulations, but put all of that aside for now and concentrate on what you would like to see there or what would be the best use for the community.

Today, we are featuring the old TicketNetwork building on Bolton Road.

It was being used briefly by the company after it left Vernon in the summer of 2011 to open its headquarters on the former Gerber campus just over the South Windsor line.

But now it sits vacant, very - VERY - close to the Interstate-84 exit 66 interchange.

So what should go there?

Tell us in the comments.

I'm for smaller government!!! I can't see a DMV coming here, they started to close some offices around Connecticut!

One of the Hospitals could use this building for a satellite office. Good size building and plenty of parking. Another use may be a Day Care Facility or Elderly Care Facility. It may also be used for class room space for a satellite school or college.

What about cutting it up into Office Condos? Town gets to expand it's tax base without providing additional services.
