Letter to the Editor: Regarding the HDC Discussion of a New Home for the Fire Station

~ Submitted by Barbara Hitchcock

After serving on the Historic District Commission for 12 years or more, I find this proposal to place the Fire Station in the middle of the Historic District distressing……as well as appalling.  It appears to me that town officials may not understand the significant efforts made over the years to maintain and enhance the historic nature of Bedford’s center. It seems that this decision is made with no public conversation with the community it serves. Noting the serious impact on the Historic District, shouldn’t there have already been public discussions about other viable properties? The electorate is now faced with voting yes or no at Town Meeting absent prior, thoughtful investigation into costs, alternative locations and environmental impact.

I believe that Bedford citizens understand that the Fire Station needs a larger facility. I also believe that they would appreciate participating in the discussion to determine another possible site.
