— Town of Bristol officials presented their plan for a new firehouse in town. The plan was unveiled at a recent public meeting.

VIA architect Ashar Nelson designed the new station although the details, and purchase of an expansion property located at 32 North St., is yet to be determined.

The town’s historic station, considered limited by current standards, would be incorporated with, and centra to, Nelson’s plan.

Voters will have their say on the project on Town Meeting Day in March.

Nelson, the proposed fire station’s designer, is a lifelong Vermonter. He is the principal architect at VIA and teaches part time at Middlebury College. He is noted for sustainable building designs.
