Rebuild fire station where it is

Just wanted to remind Durango of how, in wanting to “save a buck,” they took up much of the beauty and available-for-recreation land for the “enhanced” sanitation structures at Santa Rita Park – and, I believe, with (inevitable) overruns – they spent more than projected anyway.

Instead of again “overspending” to make the school district Administration Building work for your fire department, tear down the existing fire department structure and rebuild exactly what the fire department needs; it will probably be more cost effective and, at the same time, preserve a neighborhood and the parks adjoining Durango’s downtown.

Growth requires thoughtful, creative vision and “smart spending” to make our living spaces and work spaces amenable to all.
