OPEN HOUSE SET SEPT. 6 ON PROPOSED FIRE STATION SITE AT CACTUS/96TH STREET. by azhttp

OPEN HOUSE SET SEPT. 6

Scottsdale may purchase a 2-acre parcel at 96th Street and Cactus Road for a

new fire station, and the city’s Fire Department wants to hear from

neighbors about the proposal.

The Fire Department is holding an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 6

at the Via Linda Senior Center, 10440 E. Via Linda, just east of Scottsdale

Ranch Park. New station locations are critical to meet the department’s

goal to arrive at emergencies in 4 minutes or less 80 percent of the time.

Currently, the area to be served by the proposed station is averaging

response times of 8 to 9 minutes 80 percent of the time. The area is

roughly bounded by the CAP Canal, Raintree Drive, the Pima Freeway, and

Cholla Street. Most of the area is developed, and parcels suitable for fire

stations are extremely limited. The department is moving quickly to assess

neighborhood support before requesting approval of the purchase by the City

Council.

The purchase is set to be considered by the Council at a meeting at 5 p.m.

on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at City Hall, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. Residents can

learn more details about the proposal by visiting www.ScottsdaleFD.com and

linking to “SFD Plans for the Future.” A question-and-answer page on

Station 8 is available. Residents can also sign up for an e-mail bulletin

on Station 8, or e-mail comments to pangelini@ScottsdaleAZ.gov
