Fire Station 5 Resiliency and Relocation Project
On April 6, 2022, the City of Santa Rosa Fire Station 5 Resiliency and Recovery project reached a major milestone with completion of the land acquisition for the 2.11-acre Keysight property as the new permanent location for Fire Station 5. The property was purchased from Keysight Technologies at a cost of $205,000.
On February 15, 2022, City Council approved the purchase of a ~2.11-acre property as the permanent location for the Fire Station 5 rebuild on a portion of Keysight’s campus located at the southeast corner of Fountaingrove Parkway and Stagecoach Road. The photo above is a design rendering of Fire Station 5 facing Stagecoach Road.
Rebuilding at this new location will improve response times for the service area, provide space for a larger facility that will support upstaffing during significant weather events and serve as a forward command post during large emergencies and as a safe refuge for residents during an emergency.
Construction is anticipated to begin in spring/summer 2023.
Fire Station 5 located on Newgate Court was destroyed during the October 2017 wildfire. To maintain response times while serving the residents of Fountaingrove and Hidden Valley neighborhoods, a temporary fire station facility was established on Parker Hill Road.
Plans for the new permanent Fire Station 5 Resiliency and Relocation Project is continuing to move forward with a proposed location at the southeast corner of Stagecoach Road and Fountaingrove Parkway.
The purpose of this project is to rebuild a permanent structure at a new location that will improve response times for the service area, to provide space for a larger facility that will support upstaffing during significant weather events and to serve as a forward command post during large emergencies and as a safe refuge for residents during an emergency.
The city engineering team is on track to bring the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS MND) and the request for purchase of the proposed new fire station property to City Council on February 1, 2022 (postponed to February 15,2022). Once the environmental process is complete, the project will proceed to the design and construction phases.
