The City and its consultant, the BKV Group, have identified multiple sites for a new fire station that provide quick access to Hwy 100 to ensure the best response times to the east side of the city. Community members are invited to open houses Feb 1, 2, or 9 to learn more about the project and share feedback.
To identify top potential sites for a new station, BKV developed an anonymous scoring system using selection criteria based on:
- location for 4-minute response time
- buildable land
Review the scoring matrix here.
If the Council affirms the recommendations for new station location in February, next steps would include outreach to affected property owners and tenants, if applicable, followed by pre-design and potential property acquisitions.
Because the Fire Department serves the entire community, it’s important to hear from as many residents and businesses as possible. Below are several opportunities to learn more and provide feedback.
