New downtown firehall

The Fire Services Strategic Plan that was completed to review the City's fire services over the next 10 years recommended that the existing Fire Hall #1 be re-developed and expanded in the downtown area. The existing building is old and energy inefficient. It is too small to meet the needs for staff, equipment and vehicle storage as well as training of staff and maintenance of equipment. The existing Fire Hall #1 has space for two vehicles where three vehicles are recommended, and has two staff persons while four staff will be required within the next five to ten years. 

Design and construction contracts are proposed to be released in 2018 to re-develop the existing Motorways property/building to meet the needs of a downtown fire station for at least the next 20 years. The existing Motorways building has been inspected by architects and engineers, and re-development of this building can be done to meet the needs of the fire department and provide the protection services required in the downtown and Riverdale area, in accordance with the Strategic Plan. 

Relocation to Motorways enables the City to construct the proposed new services building planned for the City Hall location. 

Construction is underway to re-develop the existing Motorways property/building to meet the needs of a downtown fire station. Fire Hall #1 at its current location next to City Hall is required to be maintained for heating of City Hall until development of the Services Building.
