What Should Move into the Former Saab Dealership on Hall Road?

Saab of Lakeside has left its Hall Road location. What would like you to see in its place?

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 . Dozens of readers made suggestions and Trader Joe's won by a landslide.

This week, we feature the now vacant at 19077 Hall Road. 

Saab moved out earlier this month. What would you like to see in its place?

Based on the design & lay out, I would definitely recommend a dealership, it would be nice to see Subaru represented in Macomb so our neighbors don't have to drive to Troy for sales & service

How about bulldozing it, "unpaving" it, and planting a bunch of freaking trees!!!

If you want more trees, move up north! We need more businesses to keep people employed so they can pay their bills

It should be reopened as a saad dedicated service center and when the sale of Saab is complete and production resumes it can add sales back into the dealership as cars are rolling off the line.

Sorry. Reopened as a Saab Dedicated Service Center
