In August 2018, the Village engaged MKM Projects to develop a detailed design for the new fire hall. Watch for neighbourhood and community consultation through the winter and early spring of 2019.
In June 2016, a 2.5 acre parcel was purchased at 4382 Cumberland Road, between Primose and Kendall Avenue, for the site of a new fire hall. A conceptual design has been reviewed to develop a preliminary budget. In the meantime, the site will be used as a staging area for summer road construction in the Village.
In 2018, the Village is expected to proceed with the fire hall design. Construction may take place as early as 2020.
Approximately $4 million is budgeted for fire hall construction from reserves, amenity funds and from borrowing.Search again
