As a local resident, I am in favor of combining two fire houses into the proposed station that would be on NE 138th Place.
However, I believe that putting in the proposed 20 extra parking places is unnecessary. Until now, there has been no need for those parking spaces. There is parking in Big Finn Hill Park, as well as a few spaces next to the marked entrance to the trail system on NE 138th Place. In addition, adding more spaces and therefore traffic to that already entering and exiting NE 138th Place would be an added danger on an already dangerous curve on Juanita Drive.
