This afternoon, the City Council’s Land Use Subcommittee voted unanimously to approve the sale of the former Engine 212 firehouse to the Northside Town Hall.

The Northside Town Hall is a joint project between NAG and the People’s Firehouse to convert the former firehouse on Wythe Avenue into a community center.
