The Washington Township/Avon Fire Department will be conducting a Virtual Community Meeting to discuss the plans for the construction of a new fire station. This station will be located at 1481 North CR 900 East, and is scheduled be completed by 4th quarter of 2021, or first quarter of 2022.
The fire station will house one Advanced Life Support Ambulance, as well as a fire engine. Initial staffing for the station will be 6 personnel per day, but is being designed for 8 personnel for future expansion if needed.
Property for the project was purchased in 2019, with the intent of constructing the station this year, beginning operations in 2022. Prior to purchasing the residence at 1481 North 900 East, the township also acquired approximately 10 acres of wooded property just behind or east of the proposed fire station. Current plans for the fire station do not include any reduction of wooded areas, or impacts inconsistent with how the property now exists.
Please plan to join us on January 20, 2021 at 6:30 pm for a virtual meeting to present information about the decision to construct the fire station. In addition, DELV Design Group will present the site plan, as well as exterior renderings and a floor plan.
To join on Zoom, simply use the info below at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions prior to the meeting, please feel free to contact Fire Chief Dan Smith at 317-272-2155 firstname.lastname@example.org.
