Schooley’s Mountain Road to Shut Completely for…

What Should Go Here: (Formerly) Clay's Garage

Open lot sits on south branch of the Raritan River.

It was part junkyard, part garage, part U-Haul pick-up and drop-off center.

But it was better known as at 138 West Mill Road until recently, when the garage was razed and all the broken-down vehicles were removed.

The property, which sits on the south branch of the Raritan River, was devastated by flooding after Hurricane Irene.

The piece of land is now a flat, open lot of dirt sitting across from a portion of the former Scott Farm property.

So, Long Valley, tell us what you think should go there. Another garage or service station? Something retail-based? Something different altogether?

Tell us in the comments below, and, as always, thanks for your participation.

Maybe a fishing site/picnic area.

Add native plants, wildflowers, shrubs and trees and let it become a buffer and erosion control for future flooding/wetlands issues. No need to build anything just allow it to return to it's native scenery.

Oh, and the picnic tables should be cemented to the ground so they don't get carried away from a flood.

Sorry for the delay. Thanks d33nb0 and rusty!
