Project Summary

The fire lane is just south of the entrance to the building and still in front of it. It appears that it is used to park fire equipment or to be used as a turn around because it isn’t very deep, just from the street, across the sidewalk, and into the planting bed. It’s all grass so it is easy to find, and the curb is cut too.
