Periodically, I’ll feature a commercial building or vacant lot that is for lease or sale and ask you to tell me, what do you think is the best fit for it.
What would you like to see there?
What would be the best use for the community?
Today’s Visions For Vacancies is Hurley Hill.
Hurley Hill is best seen at the intersection of Middle Street Rt. 229 and Riverside Ave. Rt. 72.
The intersection houses a railroad trestle with advertisements. One side welcomes people to Bristol.
The 74.8-acre site is now approved for 240 single-family elderly housing unit.
The site borders residential neighborhoods near Bristol Hospital and Woodland Street.
The asking price is $799,000.
So, what would you like to see there? And should Hurley Hill get developed?
Tell me on the Bristol Roundup Facebook page.
Know of a vacant building I should highlight? Let me know!
Visions For Vacancies is only the featured name of this series of posts and does not necessarily mean the highlighted property is vacant.

HARTFORD — A bill proposed by Connecticut Police Chiefs aims to prevent officer suicides. Under current law, officers who seek mental health treatment for stress or depression lose their gun permits, and as a result, their ability to work.
