Design of Greenfield (MA) Fire Department’s New Station Irks Some

Some have expressed a desire for a more traditional Greenfield look for the facility.

Following the unveiling of the Greenfield (MA) Fire Department’s new station design, residents and even some committee officials have expressed a desire for a more traditional Greenfield look for the facility, reports therecorder.com.

One concern is the design of the entrance, which some say is unceremonious, according to the report. More trepidation lies with the station having two signs. Some comments from firefighters included adding another drive-thru bay in the rear of the building and potentially adding more dorm rooms.

The committee included a few Monday and Thursday meetings throughout the month to discuss the plans, the report says. The full meetings schedule can be found here.

Department officials say they will use the temporary station on Hope Street for about two years before the new facility is ready. The former Main Street fire station will be demolished to make way for a library.
