What should Asheville’s newest fire station look like?

These photos via the city of Asheville show the architectural styles that were most popular with people who participated in a recent survey asking for input.

A community meeting to discuss plans for the fire station is set for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, at Greater Works Church, 25 Forsythe St.

The city wants to build a $3.5 million fire station on Broadway Street near the intersection of Mount Clare Avenue. That location is between the Montford and Five Points neighborhood. The new fire station would help the Asheville Fire Department improve response times to areas north of downtown.
