According to a report on localdvm.com, while still in the preliminary stages, a new fire station and homeless shelter could be coming to Fairfax County (VA).
The current Penn Daw fire station in Fairfax County needs major renovations and has “outlived its intended life cycle.”
The former site of the Hybla Valley Nursery on Beacon Hill Road could become a brand-new station. While the Eleanor Kennedy Shelter would be co-located with the proposed station. The report noted that the shelter’s current building is prohibited from renovation due to the building’s historic status.
The county wants to co-locate the shelter with the station to create a new building, the report said. The plan’s initial phase will conclude within six to nine months.
