City of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/2945Fire12/1/2023 8:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2945/Newsroom_FIre_Fix.jpgCity of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74<div class="ExternalClass4C9260A8D4554A0285228DCB585C684D"><p>​​On Thursday, November 30th the City of Phoenix held a community meeting at Pecos Community Center focused on the plans for future Phoenix Fire Station 74. This will be the fourth fire station addition to Ahwatukee. This will complete the firefighting force for the growing community and greatly reduce response times by crews.</p><p>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, District 6 Phoenix City Councilman Kevin Robinson, and District 1 Phoenix City Councilwoman and Public Safety and Justice Chair Ann O'Brien were in attendance of the community meeting. Members of the Phoenix Fire Department's Executive Staff and the City of Phoenix's Parks and Recreation Department joined Pearlman Architects to discuss the future fire station.</p><p>The meeting focused on sharing conceptual designs from Pearlman Architects and the relocation of the Buresa Trailhead. Because the City of Phoenix already owns the land through the Parks and Recreation Department, the project will be fast tracked. But not to fear, the trailhead is not closing and not going far! The relocation of the Buresa Trailhead will be moved less than ¼ of a mile to the west.</p><p>Located on the northwest corner of 19th Avenue and Chandler Boulevard, this will allow for both the enjoyment of the beautiful Phoenix trail and the building of a new 13,250 square foot state of the art fire station.</p><p>Built with sustainability in mind, the future Phoenix Fire Station 74 has been designed per the City of Phoenix building design standards and current adopted building codes. It will incorporate environmental design principals similar to LEED to reduce energy consumption and water preservation.</p><p>The station will be single story and include three bays to house a fire engine and medical rescue. It will also include thirteen unisex dorms for firefighters to operate 24/7, 365 days a year.</p><p>When completed, the Ahwatukee community will have a total of four fire stations with four engine companies, one ladder company, three rescue companies. The city will hire and train 24 new Phoenix firefighters to provide staffing for three shifts and the necessary relief rate. The daily staffing will be six people total, including four on the engine and two on the rescue.</p><p>Construction is set for early 2024 with the goal of completing the station by 2025 to begin operations. ​<br></p></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireNewsfirePhoenix officials gather for community meeting about future fire station 74Fire#PHXFire #FutureFireStationFuture Phoenix Fire Station 74 @PHXFire @PhoenixFireDepartmentAli Pardi602-908-4253ali.pardi@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/104/Ali_Pardi.jpgPHXFire

These trees represent our commitment to shade equity and climate resilience, ensuring that every resident enjoys the benefits of a greener, cooler, and more inviting environment," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.</p> <p>Last fall, the Office of Heat Response and Mitigation launched its Community Canopy grant program which offers free trees and tree planting support for residents and neighborhoods in <a href="https://www.huduser.gov/portal/sadda/sadda_qct.html" target="_blank">Qualified Census Tracts (QCTs)</a>. </p> <p>"I am incredibly proud to represent such a vibrant and engaged community," Councilwoman Laura Pastor said. “It brings me great joy to see so many of my constituents taking advantage of the Community Canopy grant program, as it not only beautifies our neighborhoods but also has numerous environmental benefits."</p> <p>Trees for the tree planting are being supplied by <a href="https://www.treeland.com/" target="_blank">Treeland Nurseries</a> and contractor <a href="https://westcoastarborists.com/" target="_blank">West Coast Arborists</a> will plant trees for grant recipients. In addition, each resident will receive a supply bag equipped with an irrigation timer, a moisture meter, a 100-foot hose, two t-shirts as well as information on their trees and how to care for them. </p> <p>“The goal of these tree plantings is to provide more shade to homes in Phoenix neighborhoods as well as bring communities together. A lot of these residents are meeting their neighbors for the first time," says Urban Tree Project Manager Lora Martens. “These tree plantings in front line communities, are truly improving the tree equity gap in our city." </p> <p>The grant program is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and <a href="https://phoenix-gov.formstack.com/forms/community_canopy_grant_application" target="_blank">applications</a> for the Community Canopy grant program are still being accepted. Residents interested in getting trees planted in their neighborhood can submit their application online at <a href="/heat" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/heat</a>. All projects must be completed by Dec. 31. <br><br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/oepNews
