Business Owners, Residents Give New Fire Station Plan Mixed Response
Several local business owners and citizens are opposing a plan for a new fire station that would replace a parking lot in downtown Logan.
In minutes from the Logan Municipal Council Meeting on May 4, the proposed construction of Fire Station 70 was discussed with a budget of $325,000 and would be located on the corner of 100 East and Federal Avenue near the preexisting fire station, near Lucky Slice Pizza and Le Nonne.
According to minutes from the meeting, Craig Humphreys, assistant chief of the Logan Fire Department, addressed the issue of losing parking. Humphreys said while parking stalls would be lost, parking would be rearranged to maintain around the same number of spaces and more stalls would be added along Church Street and 200 North.
