Awareness and public education
Construction begins, and will continue until fall 2024
As the City continues to grow, the need for essential services continues to rise. Station 125 has been identified as a priority because it’s located in an area included in the Shaping Ninth Line future growth plan.
The plan makes recommendations for mixed-use development of the lands on the west side of Ninth Line. The recommendations include both residential housing options and community facilities.
The leash-free park located where the station will be built, will be relocated to accommodate the new fire station.
There is a plan to construct six new fire stations across the City over the next twelve years. The primary goal is to have stations located across the City to optimize emergency response times. This will further improve response times to meet the goal of first truck response in four minutes or less, 75% of the time.
