What Should Go Here: Vacant Lot

How should this plot of land on West Beach Street be filled?

This empty lot next to the on West Beach Street is full of crab grass and weeds, but it's zoned commercial and could be a transformed into any number of things.

The spot is west of Highway 1, surrounded by ag land and industrial areas. There's been talk that the lot would be good for a fast food joint, since it has easy access to the highway via Riverside Drive and Lee Road.

Last week, .

So let your creative juices flow on this spot too. What would you like to see go in next to the highway? What does Watsonville absolutely need that they don't currently have? Tell us what you think in the comments!

Wishful thinking if anyone thinks things will ever change in Watsonvile. Get out while you can.

@ExResident: you obviously don't live here anymore so why leave such negative comments? Personally, I really don't care to read them...

Oh come on Watzon, you don't think people from Santa Cruz, Capitola, and Aptos wouldn't make a special trip for a Black Bear Diner? They come for Target now (until the Capitola one opens). I think you'd be surprised...
