More Questions Than Answers
Regarding the Fire Chief's letter in the Oct. 26 issue of the Groton Herald. We are afraid it raises more questions than answers. We are confused. Originally the Chief stated the ladder truck was hard to get in the station. Now, it seems all of the fire trucks have mirror problems affecting their response time. He rejects adding on to the old station ("not big enough") we think the Chief should drop down his size expectations and therefore the station price would drop, making it more acceptable to the populous,
He completely ignores the Electric Light Dept. garage as an option for space now and in the future. This building has much potential and would offer access to the Groton School via Broadmeadow Road. The big thing is, it's already built, but needs improvement.
Completely overlooked by all is the front lawn area of NEBS Corp. on Rte. 119 opposite Mill Run Plaza. It has few neighbors and is a central location, bothering no one. This could be taken by eminent domain.
The Lawrence Homestead location makes no sense at all. We think the whole fire station issue and location should be pre-thought, given the hard economic times.
