    I saw them out there yesterday. I live around the corner and would love to see something awesome there (or even less than awesome would be better than an empty service station!)

    People shouldn’t be applying paint to each other in a public space, even with big brushes, which is fairly gentle as paint application goes, or with red paint, which is the most beautiful color of paint. [Nothing written here should be construed as legal advice or a legal opinion.]

    The park parcel (the corner of Main and Depot) is maintained by First Martin.

    The gas station – empty for years – has been a source of complaint about urban blight for the last decade, if not longer.

    Hope this means the property owner is thinking of a better use.

    That odd little building was a gas station? It’s so small. Is it only part of what used to be a larger building?
