I am pleased to update you on the progress of the new Fire Station 4 facility coming to your neighborhood. The plans for the new Station 4 are currently in the development and design stages. The City will go out for bids on this project in the fall or winter of 2021 and construction is expected to begin in spring 2022. The new Fire Station 4 will be constructed on the current site at 4201 West 84th Street. Fire service to the area will be maintained throughout construction.
The existing Fire Station 4 is more than 50 years old and no longer meets the needs of the community or the Fire Department. There is not adequate space for firefighters to train or work at the existing station. The new Station 4 will provide enough room for safe operation of equipment and for firefighters to stay if they need to be on-site for more than 24 hours. It will also allow the Fire Department the space and resources needed to continue providing excellent service to the community.
Public engagement will be conducted throughout the construction process of this important public safety facility. Visit us at the Farmer’s Market on August 7th or October 2nd, or stop by our Open House at Fire Station 4 on October 9th from 10AM to 1PM to learn more.
