Steamboat Springs (CO) city officials have further explored selling the current fire station at 840 Yampa St. and building a new one at 137 10th St., reports steamboatpilot.com.
The location, where City Hall currently sits, would call for the construction of a new City Hall on city-owned land at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and 10th Street, the report says.
They said the current station location is too small and doesn’t handle the appropriate equipment or housing for crews.
City officials estimate the project would cost $18,726,978; though they say $4 million would come from the mill levy passed in 2019; $5.4 million from the Steamboat Springs Area Fire Protection District; $100,000 from solar grant funds; and $1.2 million from Department of Local Affairs grants.
The council has been in discussions about the move for months now, and the proposed facility would be about 17,500 square feet with four bays, living quarters, administrative offices, and building support, according to the report.
