The Collinsville Ax Factory’s mill buildings should be renovated into a  mix of housing, businesses and other uses, advocates Tom Condon in an editorial for the Hartford Courant.  If done well, this mixed-use development will act as an extension of the downtown, providing current residents who want to downsize an enviable option for staying in town, while providing young people and empty nesters with more choices for living in a vibrant town center.
