MESSAGE FROM THE FIRE DISTRICT
On November 5th the Star Fire Protection District residents will have an opportunity to decide the future relocation and expansion of Star Fire Station 1 that currently provides fire protection and emergency services to our entire community. The District Commissioners cannot make this decision alone. IT REQUIRES YOU!
The District has been providing excellent fire and emergency medical services to our community for over 66 years. Station 1 is currently located at 10831 W State St., was built in 1985 prior to the District having full time firefighters, and is in need of remodeling or replacement. In order to accommodate current staffing levels of 12 full time firefighters (4 per shift - 24 hours a day) as well as increased staffing in the future, the District is faced with the cost of remodeling or relocating the station.
The current station was evaluated by an architect who recommended a complete remodel which would add square footage and bring the building up to code. This would cost approximately $4 million dollars for a 7,000 square foot facility ($572 per sq/ft) but would not fulfill all the current needs of the District nor any future growth.
Alternatively, the District had the unique opportunity to cost-effectively secure a 37,000 square foot facility in a desirable location that can be improved into a new location for the fire station, administrative offices, community/training room, apparatus maintenance facility, and an additional 7000 square feet of leasable space. This proposal will solve our immediate need in the core area of the District as well as a 20 to 30 year solution, all at a reasonable cost. The total estimated cost of the facility including its remodel is $93 per sq/ft where similar facilities in surrounding municipalities are costing $350-$550 per sq/ft.
PLEASE GET INFORMED AND VOTE, a bond approval requires two-thirds of voters (or 66.7%) to pass. We encourage all citizens to ask questions and get informed by attending a Town Hall Meeting, visiting our website, taking a quick survey, or contacting the Fire Chief to schedule a tour. Most importantly let your voice be heard and VOTE November 5th!
