04/21/12 156 W, 2 I - + 5 - 5 Cary Fire Station 8 Under Construction

The ground has been broken for Cary Fire Station 8 at 408 Mills Park Drive. The two-story station will have three apparatus bays, measure 14,410 square-feet, and include a 1,160 square-foot satellite police station. The station will house an engine company, but is built to include a ladder company and Battalion Chief in the future. It's also the town's first "green build" building. (This blog is also environmently friendly, by the way. It's built from 100-percent recycled thoughts!)

The cost of the project is $5.9 million. The designer is ADW Architects of Charlotte. Read more about the project. Here's a reader photo of the construction site. Thanks Jeff. And maybe we can dig up a map showing all Cary fire station locations, current and planned. e.g., new Station 2 at 601 E. Chatham Street, Station 9 in O'Kelly Chapel Road Area, Station 10 in West Lake/Middle Creek area.

Hey Cary guys, are they still planning the big area of development to be the Cary Park and 55/540 corridor? Obviously growth has slowed, but is it still proposed later down the road?

Hey Jeff, yes, and they are working with Chatham County now to extend the Land Use plan almost all the way to the lake. From what I understand there are a number of things still being planned for that area west of 55, and I’m sure that will speed up once 540 is completed through there.

Any news on additional staffing or when the hiring process may be?

CFD will be hiring staffing for an Engine Company for this house. That will mean 15 positions, plus any additional vacancies. As for time frame I would say to look for something towards the end of the year. I would submit an interest card on the Cary Human Resources site if you are interested.
