Just curious .... how does the Fire Department get past the zoning requirements to do this? Any other business/organization would have great difficulty setting this up in a residential neighborhood I would guess.

Perhaps it was deemed suitable because it's located on a road, and not a street?

On Aug. 20, the McMinnville Planning Commission approved a fire department request to make ambulance substations an outright use, thus not subject to the conditional use process, which requires hearings. You can find the story at:

Thank you. It should work great. Just looks out of place with all of the houses.

We are really blessed in this town with a great fire department. It amazes me to think that 24/7 365, one phone call to 911 will bring these guys to our homes within 6 minutes. Thanks for all you do MFD!!!

Glad I don't live near that house when they get a 3am call!
