This afternoon, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved the design for the Wendell Falls Fire/EMS Station. These four documents (PDF) were part of the presentation:
The joint facility will be located on 2.76 acres on Taylor Road, about 500 feet from Wendell Falls Parkway. This location is about a half-mile from the US 64/264 interchange. The site was approved for acquisition in November 2016.
Wake County will own the property and the building. It will be occupied by Wendell Fire Department (as a third station) and Eastern Wake EMS (housing EMS units and administration).
The single-story, 16,549-foot facility will be equipped with four double-length apparatus bays, living and sleeping quarters, a training room, an exercise room, laundry space, and 44 parking spaces.
Construction is expected to start in Fall 2018, with a twelve-month construction time. The project will cost just over $7 million, including land.
