Current Activity

Posted Friday, July 27

Construction for this project is underway. Devices to treat stormwater runoff have been installed at the site and the contractor is now working on the foundation for the building. Work also is being done to replace any unsuitable soil on the property, which can be found after a dated building is demolished/construction on the site begins. Following a few unexpected weather and construction delays, the project is on track to be finished in spring 2019.

Fire Station 6 is currently closed and is temporarily relocated to Fire Station 5 (300 Oberlin Road). The Emergency Communication Center has adjusted the dispatch for all surrounding fire companies and no impacts for fire protection are expected.


The purpose of this project is to demolish and build a new fire station at 2601 Fairview Road. The new fire station will be 14,990 square feet and will consist of two equipment bays. Work for this project includes clearing and grading the current site; filling and backfilling the worksite; connecting utilities; putting in an asphalt parking area; and creating reinforced concrete "fire truck aprons" or bases and sidewalks around the station.

Renovations to the fire station include structural, electrical, interior, and landscaping work.
