PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The new fire station would be located on a 0.41 acre parcel and would consist of a single engine bay within a two story structure totaling 4,950 square feet. The building has been designed to house and support a typical three-person crew and captain. The proposed facility would include office, kitchen and dining area, day room, exercise room, private sleeping rooms with share bathroom facilities, a single engine equipment bay with lockers and storage areas, and an emergency generator. The environmental review for the fire station is included for the anticipated improvements to Borel Park.
