Replacing the former station in another location, this new mixed-use station and municipal building is designed to be both functional and aesthetic, reflecting the needs of the firefighters who spend extended periods of time in the building and those of the surrounding community.

The building headquarters the city’s fire department, and includes four vehicle bays, offices and living quarters. Crew members reside on the second floor with administrative space located on the third.
