For my last entry, I will be writing about something that probably doesn’t strike many as fascinating or relevant: firehouse renovation. Right now, the firehouse at the intersection of Havana and Orchard is being considered for renovation. One plan is very elaborate, including a substantial increase in the size of the firehouse.
Residents in the nearby neighborhoods oppose this plan because, they argue, the construction of the plan would be disruptive to the community, and the end product would be too large and too bright considering its proximity to the neighborhoods.
Though I do not live in an adjacent neighborhood, that is the nearest firehouse to my home, and I certainly empathize with the concerns of the residents of adjacent neighborhoods.
