Proposed Fire Station Informational Meeting Fills Town Office Meeting Room.
Close to 100 Newbury residents attended Monday’s Public Information Meeting at Town Office. Architect, Peter Tenant and Fire Station Committee member, Ken Holmes presented the updated plan for construction of the new fire station.
Following the presentation, the meeting was opened to questions and comments from those in attendance. The reaction from the group to the new plan was very positive. They were impressed with new building design, cost reduction and the plan for the existing building.
There appeared to be support from the community for the proposal, which is expected to be approved by the selectboard to be put on the ballot as a warrant article for a vote by town residents at Town Meeting in March.
