The old Thread Mill was suppose to be home to apartments and businesses by now. Instead the property on River Road in Pawcatuck sits empty.
Last December, The Day, reported the Town of Stonington was, “preparing to cite the mill's owners, POKO Partners LLC of Port Chester, N.Y., with violating the town's distressed buildings ordinance. POKO would then have the choice of making repairs and securing the building or tearing it down.”
, told The Day he wanted to keep the town’s old mills active, using Mystic’s renovated and Stonington’s Velvet Mill as examples.
What would you like to see move into the Thread Mill property? Should POKO Partners LLC have one more chance to turn the place into apartments? Or do you have another idea for what would be the perfect business or enterprise to occupy the old Thread Mill building?
