Plans have been announced for the construction of a new fire station in Santa Fe that will go up near the intersection of New Mexico State Road 599 and S. Meadows Road.
As earlier discussed, the 14,000 square foot facility will include living quarters, locker rooms, laundry space, bathrooms, a fitness room, and dining room and kitchen, among other amenities.
The project, which has already been the subject of a community input meeting, will also feature 2,100 square feet of exterior portals and a three-bay drive-through apparatus room.
The new facility will additionally feature an HVAC system and LED lighting.
Also included: a multi-function tower for training purposes.
The Santa Fe Fire Department currently has six stations located in various sections of the city. The new facility, designated as Station Number Two, would primarily serve the southwest side of Santa Fe.
The City of Santa Fe has issued a Request for Proposals for the project, with a submission deadline of November 5.
