PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — The site of the old St. Anthony Hospital has been chosen as the preferred location for a new Pendleton fire station.The City Council was deciding between the hospital and the closed Pendleton Cinema. St. Anthony has more room for training and parking while the cinema would be a little cheaper to develop and generate quicker response times.Besides the space issue, the East Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/dHSDCN ) that councilors leaned toward the St. Anthony site because it wouldn't take commercial real estate off the market.The estimated cost of acquiring and developing the St. Anthony property is $2 million while the estimate for the old Pendleton cinema ranged from between $1.75 million and $1.95 million.Those estimates don't include the cost of construction.___Information from: East Oregonian, http://www.eastoregonian.com
