New Fire Station
By Chris Elliott


August 03, 2011

While I'm thankful for the jobs associated with the construction of the new fire station, I've got to say, it's a real eyesore. The closer it comes to completion, the more it becomes obvious that it is not a visually attractive addition to the downtown. The limited "view" we had from Whale Park is now completely obliterated. The building looms over you as you drive by it.

I can only imagine what will happen when there is a fire and the trucks come barreling out of there in the middle of town with tourists crossing every which way and traffic backed up to the tunnel and Creek Street.
