New Firehouse Project
On June 4th 2013 a public vote was held for a referendum to replace the current firehouse with a new building. The new proposed building would be a practical, modern and safer facility for the firefighters to work from, and eliminate a long list of deficiencies with the old firehouse. That referendum was approved by the voters, and now the fire district has now begun the process to finalize the plans and start construction.
Below is a site plan, floor plans and front view of the proposed building. These are not final drawings, but rather drawings used to establish the overall layout of the building and provide an accurate cost estimate. The next phase of the process includes refining these plans with more detail, and the final plans may not be exactly as seen here. The architects will develop a full set of construction specifications and bids will be received for the work to be done.
The fire district is also working on temporary relocation plans, including using our storage/maintenance building for apparatus to respond from. Additional locations are being researched to ensure our emergency response is not affected.
The shaded area of the site plan will be the general location of the new building.
