Opinion: Bristol firehouse worth supporting

I attended all of the site selection meetings and most of the site design meetings for the proposed Bristol Fire Station — the firefighters and community members on those committees did a thorough, transparent, and responsible job. They have been attentive to the public’s input from the very first community meetings held at the Legion in spring of 2013 to the open house and discussion forums held this spring at Holley Hall and the fire station.
They have also been incredibly cost-conscious throughout the process and have done an excellent job finding a site and designing a building that meets our fire response needs as affordably as possible. In addition to being appropriately equipped to serve us well into the future, the new building is highly energy-efficient, durable and beautiful. It will occupy a place of pride at one of the key gateways into our town, granting honor and visibility to our firefighters.
Please join me in voting YES for the Bristol Fire Station bond vote on Tuesday, July 7.
Porter Knight
