With a minor adjustment of rotating the proposed fire station at 321 George Washington Highway, the Smithfield Planning Board last Thursday unanimously approved preliminary plans for the facility.
Engineer Brian King, of Crossman Engineering, presented the plans on behalf of the town, which showed the original building plans shifted slightly to move the front entrance of the structure. Originally placed off-center to the right, the new entrance is presented in the middle and front of design plans. In addition, the design adds parking spaces, putting the final count up to 31 spaces from 27, King said.
The updated plan will not require any further allowances, which were already issued to the town from the Smithfield Planning Board.
