Joe Stanton had a vision for filling the vacancy of the downtown Geneva post office, at 26 S. Third St.
Back in 2010, the Geneva businessman and this year's had an interesting proposal to do an adaptive re-use of the building that would have allowed the post office to remain at its present site.
was to keep the post office entrance on Third Street and create a new building entrance to the left of the current main entrance as you face the building, a change that would have provided room for two additional tenants in a lower basement area.
It didn't happen, but it was a creative idea.
The was hoping to rally enough support to where it is. The petition drive was proposed in a chamber e-blast in July 2011.
What do you think? Should the post office stay a post office? Is there possibly a better use? If so, what would it be?
