Community Meetings on New Fire Station #3

The city will hold a series of meetings about planning for a replacement fire station and an emergency operations center.

From a City of Alameda press release

The City of Alameda has started the long-term project to build a modern Fire Station and Emergency Operations Center to replace the old Fire Station 3, near the corner of Buena Vista Avenue and Grand Street. Station 3 serves the central areas of Alameda’s Main Island.

The early phase of the project requires conducting a feasibility study. And in the early phase of the feasibility study the City is holding a series of community meetings to share the goals for Station 3 and hear from residents about your concerns and ideas.

There will be three community meetings, all at Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Ave., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The dates are:

  • Sept. 13, project introduction and community discussion
  • Sept. 20, project update based on prior community discussion
  • Oct. 1, project recommendation

Is this the same critically needed emergency operations center for which it was so critically important to pass a tax increase, which was defeated? If so, plans to move forward with it add to my lack of trust in city leaders.

Yes, it is.
Alexander Nguyen, Deputy City Manager September 11, 2012 at 06:04 PM
Dear Rev. Matthews: Alameda is an island city next to the Hayward Fault. The City needs to have a proper Emergency Operations Center, and we must go forward to find a way to fund it.
